From the Thunderbolt display, can I use a mini display to dvi adapter to connect another monitor, such as a dell?

Likely not. I've just talked with an Apple store to see if I could connect the previous generation display, a Cinema display (that was connected to a Thunderbolt port) to a Thunderbolt display and they said no. They claim to have tested it in the store as well. So, if a device like a Cinema display won't function off the Thunderbolt port on a Thunderbolt display (which normally works fine off the Thunderbolt port on the Mac) then I suspect a mini display to DVI adapter would suffer the same fate. Rather surprises me though. Thanks DeerPark Apple for testing it out first!
