Thi has something I think to do with the formatting of the cards/Hard drives when they are installed into the equipment. I have a 32meg SD card for my Ericsson MP3 player add on for my mobile and it reads 30. meg. My 128 meg compact flash card for my camera reads 122 meg and the 80gig hard drive is the same as yours.

Just the FAT I would assume

I think that demora is right; it has everything to do formatting and formatting information. Sometimes size is also misreported by OS.

They are all correct apart fron the PC RAM. Does your Grandpa's PC have onboard graphics with shared memory? It sounds like it is using 32MB of the PC's RAM, which is OK.
