Subject:   Partition sized in bsdinstall partition editor
Message-ID:  <>

I'm trying to install 10.0 on a new machine with a 1 TB disk.  When I 
enter partition sizes in the bsdinstall partition editor, I sometimes 
get some odd results, in that the size displayed is different from what 
I entered.  For instance, when I tried to enter 1 MB for the boot 
partition, it displayed the size as 20 kB.  When I tried to enter 100 MB 
for the /usr partition, it displayed 0.7 TB.  Some sizes gave negative 

Are these just bugs in how the size is displayed, or is there some other
