I inherited SharePoint and the environment I have. Does anyone have a
good reference or recomendations for creating a new environment. Specifically,
I am looking for recomendations for

User accounts to install and run SP - how many, running what pieces
How many SSPs?

No one is going to be able to answer this for you. There are way to many
factors involved.
The only definite recommendation is to limit any document library to less than
2000 documents.

If you are going to have more than one SSP, make sure you have a really good
why. Have your install  account, used to install SharePoint and used for the
Central Administration application pool. Additional accounts  for application
pools as required by your security needs. An account  for the search service
and crawler. Other accounts as required by security needs. All accounts are
domain users and do not need special permissions, (except the install/CA
account which needs SQL DBcreator and SecurityAdmin roles and should be a
local admin on the SharePoint servers for installation).

You bring up something I'm trying to determine if it is an issue. I recently did
a SP2010 install. I have (2) WFEs. One I did using my FARM account  to install.
The other I forgot and installed under my Domain Admin account. I don't detect
any problems. SP is humming along. Have I introduced a possible problem for down
the road?

I haven't been able to run  all the permutations and play it out with 2010
yet, so I can't give a qualified answer at this point. What I have seen is
that 2010 seems to be more stable, account-wise, than 2007. With 2010, the
account used to run the config wizard seems more important than the account
used to install  the bits. If you used your domain account  to run the wizard
on the second machine, I would be tempted to remove it from the farm and
re-run the wizard.
