    I downloaded some non market apps and installed them and they run perfectly. However, do I need to keep the apk files on the SD card or can I delete them?

    It is helpful to keep them on the SD card in case you need to do a hard reset and want to reinstall them. It is not a requirement to keep them though. It is up to you.

    Can I run my apps from the SD card? Do I have to do a partition to install them in the SD?

    It will have to be rooted and then you can load a program to run them from the card. Fresh ROM 1.1 allows for this if you choose that option.
