Approval Workflow in SharePoint Foundation

I need to build an approval workflow in SharePoint Foundation 2010, using SharePoint Designer 2010.

Since the functionality is so limited for SharePoint Foundation, I need to know whether we have to build our own initiation and task forms as .aspx forms, or can I create these just in SharePoint Designer 2010 alone?  InfoPath would have been available for SharePoint Server 2010, but it is not a part of SharePoint Foundation.

Any tips or examples of building an approval workflow in SharePoint Designer for SharePoint Foundation would be appreciated.

I know - I only realized that later.  The "Tasks" are completely missing in SPF.

Video is for Sharepoint Server, not Foundation.

How did you do this?
