Installing Windows 7 Business Edition

I need to do app testing with the RC and know that we will be running Windows 7 Business Edition when it is released. Is there a way to install Windows 7 as this edition under the RC?

Thanks.

Man, Win7 does look nicer, doesn't it? Never underestimate eye candy, it was the main reason that i liked Ubuntu Linux was all the candy that I could prop up on the screen.

I assumed WinFS was being developed to replace NTFS but it seems that WinFS is not a complete disk part systems, just a subsystem. I agree, NTFS is OLD and needs to be updated big time.
