In my production environment my Sharepoint 07 SSP is currently living on our main SharePoint 07 Portal. The central admin site is on a completely seperate site. In my dev environment I have both the Central Admin and SSP on seperate sites. The question is should I move it to a different site? I would like to keep it seperate from my main portal site,  but is this risky. Now, the second part of this is I am upgrading SharePoint this weekend from 07 to 2010 (using the database attach method). So if I keep the SSP as is do you forsee me having any issues?

When you upgrade to 2010, there are no longer any SSPs.  Everything that the SSPs provided in 2007 are now simply services of the main 2010 farm.  The only thing you would then separate out is the My Sites, which you can put on their own site or under another site, that would be up to you (http://mysite vs http://mainsite/mysite).  Here are the upgrade instructions for the SSP portion: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/alimaz/archive/2009/11/08/upgrading-moss-2007-ssp-user-profiles-and-mysite-content-to-sharepoint-server-2010-using-db-attach-method.aspx.

That's right. So I am creating a new service and upgrading the old SSP database. I am not actually associating it with a website anymore. I know this is only losely related to the orginal question, but can I choose not to upgrade the mysite database, but instead just create a new one. We haven't allowed folks to use it in 2007, but they will be using more social computing features in 2010.

Yes, you can create a new 2010 farm and simply attach the content databases for the site collections and skip the SSP all-together.

The SSP primarily manages My Sites, Search Indexing, and Excel Services.  So, by not upgrading the SSP you will lose any existing My Site data, any existing search indexes (which is probably good anyway, a fresh index is better), and your Excel Services trusted locations, etc.

Nothing detrimental.
