I haven't read much on it yet (I will follow those links soon!), but
Linux Outlaws did a discussion on the subject.  Apparently the
signature requirement would be a toggle in the bios that could be
turned on and off, but Windows would not run without turning it on.

If this is true then it would mean a system had to be one or the
other, and the closest you could get to dual booting would be to run a
Linux VM on a Windows host.

I am off to follow links!
