Windows 7: Using TrueCrypt on a pendrive

Using TrueCrypt on a pendrive

Good day.
Been using True Crypt on my desktop and its working fine,I have several important medical info stored in the True crypt file.And I also have a backup of the files.
Now what I'm looking for is for some easy explanation on getting True crypt to work on my 8GB pen drive,Would that be possible on an 8GB drive or would I need a larger one,The files that I have saved on the desktop are in PDF format so maybe the 8GB would be okay?
Now is it straight forward for me to get this software on to my pen drive which a backup of the files in question are on it.
Looking for a straight forward method,Do I leave the pen drive in the FAT format or would it have to be changed?
Many Thanks In Advance.
