Just give it a recharge if it is a new battery. Just take it out of the car and put it on a trickle charger for 24/48 hours. (But make sure you have some ventilation where you do that.)
The fact that it discharged doesn't mean it's knackered. Jump start the engine and take it for a good run and it will be ok again.
P.S. Make sure your alternator is charging enough if necessary; you didn't say why you installed a new battery in the first place, and I'm assuming the old one died of natural causes
Just wondering.... Did the boot light also drain your other battery (and you might still have had plenty of service available from it)?
Try a spot of WD40 on the switch to make sure it switches off and if that fails, take out the light bulb until you have found what is causing it to stay on.
