Your HD will revalidate itself when it becomes corrupt - unless it has a serious error in which case you need a repairing tool like Quarterback Tools (make a copy NOW onto FLOPPY for when your HD totally dies, it WILL happen one day).

Yes you can have as many virtual floppies as you like, but unless you know what you are doing you should only use them to play fully O/S games (monkey island etc) or for transferring disk images.

Getting a game with dos files on and expecting it to run in ffx: is unlikely to work as the majority of games assume the game is on df0: and uses a MFM loader to read the files. Hence when they don't find the disk, they generally crash and you need to reboot. Having FMS: in ram helps this obviously as your HD won't be read when the game legally tries to read from the device.
