Installing linoleum over asbestos tiles?

Our house has old (1980) asbestos tiles in a small bathroom in the finished basement. While I'm told they are not dangerous, walking on asbestos every day still makes me uncomfortable, and the tiles are ugly, too. We'd like to put down linoleum, ideally floating floor tiles. Can we do this without disturbing (nailing into, sanding, screwing into, etc.) the existing asbestos tiles?

Why not Flexitec vinyl sheet flooring? It can be loose layed right over the old stuff.
