phpsysinfo do show wrong HD size?

My phpsysinfo says that /dev/sda3 size is 89.77 GB, but cfdisk shows 90930.19 MB (as it should be). What makes this difference?

Phpsysinfo reports the total size to be 90.80 GB, but I have 100.0 GB HD. Even GiB -> GB won't make this big difference.

Yes, GiB -> GB does make that big of a difference. In addition, if you are using ext2/3 for the filesystem 5% of the drive space is reserved for root processes (see 'man tune2fs').
