We've co-located two machines with our ISP. we would like to use one machine as the MySQL database server and the other machine as a web server. The web server would use PHP/Apache to request the data from the database server.
Has anyone out there done something like this?

Sure, that is definately possible.
You just need to make sure that MySQL's permissions are setup to allow connections from the other computer, and when you do a mysql_connect you put the mysql servers's adrress in rather than localhost.
Hope that helps.

It works well across the Internet as well
I recently setup queries to servers at remote property locations (other states) using the method above and the Internet for a backbone.
