After expend some hours, I hope this would be of help for someone running in same problem.
1) You install/upgrade TFS2010 WITHOUT installin WSS alongside
2) you install WSS3.0 folowing multiple guides you can find here and there (or SharePoint 2010, its the same)
3) You create Web Application on Sharepoint Central Administration console, maybe over "Default Web Site":80, maybe over a new website (lets go with default name WSS gives it: "Sharepoint - 80"
4)You open TFS Admin Console, and try to connect TFS with WSS filling form with TFS URL, WSS URL, Sites virutal path AND ... (funny MS label) "Friendly name for the site..."
5) You are soooooo prof that you write a cool name like "MyCompany Team Project Sites"
6) you recive a nice TF255329: The following site could not be accessed error window, pointin you that maybe a firewall is in place, or user has no permissions
7) you go grazy testin g site (it works), testing permissions (all placed) and still error pupsup and you cant configure...
8) try THIS: in the firs textbox of Configure Sharepoint, dont put that pretty name you like, just write THE SAME FRIENDLY NAME THE SITE HAS IN IIS!!!!!!
Example "Default Web Site" or, if yo went with default WSS creating web application name, "Sharepoint - 80"
9) Push Ok on configuration window and.. DONE!!
Hope this helps
PD: please MS folks.... some advice on that field about OLBIGATORY put the same friendly name that the actual IIS site would be appreciated....

I'm struggling from same issue and the the trick with friendly name does not help. Did you solve your issue? How?
