Dell PowerEdge 1300  (formerly running Redhat)

When installing (using sysinst) on these Dells, they won't boot when
sysinst is done, saying invalid partition table.  fdisk shows the
NetBSD partition is active (I'm using the whole disk).

Install on a fresh (lilo'd) disk from Dell.
I have to install the boot selector menu, I haven't come up with another
way to make them boot.  I just tell it NetBSD, and set the timeout to 1.
