In my keychain access I have the following:
com.apple.kerberos.kdc and com.apple.systemdefault both show "This root certificate is not trusted"
Dashboard Advisory shows "This certificate was signed by an unknown authority."
I don't know what the notices mean (beyond the obvious that something is untrusted) nor do I know what to do about it.
Help will be greatly appreciated.

Let me put it in very simple words
(hope we are not loosing the 100% correctness by doing this)
If 2 instances talk to each other and want to make sure that they are who they are they can use a so called certificate. The certificate basically ensures that their identity is legit.
In general this certificate can be checked/verified by an independent authority.
If not verified by an independent authority it still is a valid certificate but it will be called self-signed (often done if you want to save the money for the verification by an independent authority).
A self-signed certificate will basically tell you that it can not be verified that you can trust this certificate but it does NOT necessarily mean that it is not trustworthy.
In your case
there is nothing to worry about
Hope this helps
