Can you run a Virtual Machine off a separate HDD or SDD than your OS?
It seems like you should be able to, but I'm curious if anybody has ever done this before?
I am thinking if some day I get a cheap 60GB SSD, and add it to my comp, I could basically use the whole thing to store a .vhd file (virtual machine hard drive image). If the VM is ran from an SSD, it should be a bit faster than if it is just a partition on the HDD, right?
Please let me know, I'm still learning.

Absolutely. I play around with multiple VMs on multiple disks all the time.
And yes, running it off an SSD will be faster.
Yes, that is absolutely possible, and it is actually a fairly common practice for those who work with virtual machines for a living.
