Hi friends,
Again, didn't have time to blog my findings until now, but I will try to catch you up with the experiment.
While continuing to install the environment, I ran into some more problems, most of them easily fixed after googling for them.
the first problem was getting the "Initialization for plugin "Microsoft.Pcw.wss" failed"
Message in the portal site.
The problem is easily solved if going into the IIS manager and moving the "Report" & "Reports Server" Virtual Applications
to a new pool, so they can run under ASP.Net 2.0 by themselves.
The full explanation can be found at Microsoft Technical Forums, here.
Another problem I ran into happened after creating a new Team  Project to play with, which later on I wanted to delete.
Surprisingly, I found out that there is no obvious way from the IDE to do that.
I did not expect an "easy" way, as no one wants this kind of action which is very destructive to be activated by people "with an easy finger on the trigger".
Googling for this again brought me to a command line solution that is working pretty well.
You can find the "How To" right here on Buck's Blog.
Another problem discovered later on in an Exception in the "Work Items" Web Part.
This was easily solved too by adding a new Work Item so the work items repository would not stay empty.
This consludes the environment installation.
Next: Importing the code from VSS to Team Foundation.
