I am taking you wish to utilize the source control features in TFS 2010 as part of a fresh install ?
-the first and probably the only document you will need to check is the TFS 2010 installation guide

TFS utilizes SQL server database engine,SQL reporting service,Sharepoint services , so you will need to install them during the installation process.
the TFS setup has improved a lot from 2008, and you will find yourself ready to go within minutes of the installation .first by creating a Team project, then adding your project code to source control , after integrating Visual studio with TFS source control.
Visual studio 2010 will work greatly and seamlessly with TFS 2010 , but in order to integrate VS 2008 with TFS 2010 as you asked, take a look at the below post please.

under TFS 2010 , first you will need to understand Team project collections , which is a new concept introduced in TFS 2010
http://blogs.msdn.com/bharry/archive/2009/04/19/team-foundation-server-2010-key-concepts.aspx
you should make sure first you have installed Team Explorer application for 2010.
From Visual studio   >View >team explorer >epand  your team project from Default project collection >source control , then in the left hand explorer like pane , right click anywhere & choose add items to source control, this is where you can select files to upload.
to aid you in such tasks , below is the TFS admin guide document.
give it a good read and let me know if you need any further help
