Asbestos in the basement

So we just had half of our basement finished which I'm happy about. The other half is still unfinished, with our washer and dryer. DH was looking at the tile from the unfinished side and was concerned because it's so old. Some parts of the floor don't even have tile - it's just concrete. He took some samples (three different types of tiles that were here when we moved in - the house was built in the 1950s I think) and sent them to a lab. Sure enough, 2 of the three samples contain asbestos.
So that's great news and now we're trying to figure out what to do. We can't afford to buy more tile to cover it up yet. I read that if you don't disturb it, it's ok. Anyone have any experience with this?
