Bug#322922: install: The partitioner thinks that a 511705088 B is too large for a drive with 5.7 GB unpartitioned space

Package: install
Severity: normal

During installing sarge with images from 
(booting installation from GRUB), during the question:

[!!] Partition disks

it says:

The minimum size you can use is 512.0 B or 0% and the maximum size is
5.7 GB.

New partition size:

and I entered 511705088 B

It said:

[!] Partition disks
   Too large size

Besides that, the dialog doesn't say does it interpret kB, MB and GB as
powers of 1000 or 1024. It should clearly mention how will it interpret
these. Best if it would say that kB, MB and GB will mean powers of 1000,
and kiB, MiB and GiB will mean powers of 1024.
