I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Just to re-iterate what I posted above, it also has an overview on applications and services that are different between Server 2010 and Foundation 2010.  The install is essentially the same for both of them, with some minor differences.  Following that guide would be an excellent start.

On top of that, here are the REQUIRED services that you need in order to run SharePoint Foundation 2010:  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee662519.aspx

Here is another article that is fairly interesting.  While it pertains to Server 2010, remember that both installs are essentially the same: http://sharepointgeorge.com/2010/installing-sharepoint-2010-privilege-service-accounts/

Yet another good article (I follow just about everything that Gary LaPoint says, and this is a very good example of WHY I do so.  On top of that, his extensions for Powershell and STSADM are tpo notch!): http://stsadm.blogspot.com/2010/10/service-accounts-and-managed-service.html
