If you use the standard TFS 2010 installation option, you can do the entire installation and you will only need to create a single domain account. Make sure it has Allow log on locally permission. TFS will prompts you for it during install. TFS will use it for both report reader and sharepoint farm admin identity. All other service accounts can be set to Network service.
