Buy A legit copy and use that key. we advocate purchase and legitimate use of win 7. Alternately I am sure you could always google your question

Purchase it. :)

You can buy the upgrade versions and they'll work with the pre-release / Release Candidate stuff, though will still technically fresh install.

Anything like the Release Candidate won't be supported software, so the more time goes on, the more likely there will be security vulnerabilities, incompatibilities, etc., with it that won't get patched, unlike the official stuff.

Even though it will run through March/June of 2010, it would be good to get to the final thing once it's out in stores.
