Uniform order statistic median

I need to calculate the exact value of the uniform order statistic medians:

http://www.itl.nist.gov/div898/handbook/eda/section3/probplot.htm

Now I'm using the 3 formulas m(i)= ... in the link, but I read that the
error is about 2*10^-3:

I found some links where it is said that the uosm is related to the
incomplete beta function, but I did some trials and I got totally
meaningless values.

Please, could someone tell me how to calculate the exact values?

Thanks
Cristiano
