I covered that in my previous post: Crutchfield isn’t to blame for this situation any more than CentOS is for the UEFI+SB situation.  Blame Ford and Honda, Intel and Microsoft.

The skills and equipment you need to do this are directly analogous to those needed to repartition a Windows box for dual-boot.  The two cohorts are probably about the same order of magnitude in size, and somewhat overlapping.
