You should read some of the threads before you post questions that have been already answered, in short no you should do a fresh install otherwise you will most likely run into problems.

Microsoft actually recommends you don't upgrade from the beta to the RC, although it is possible, I wouldn't recommend it either. A quick search of "Windows 7 RC upgrade from 7000" you will find instructions on how.

You can upgrade but you would need to modify a file in the .iso, clean install would be better though.

If you never had a problem getting the drivers with the beta i doubt it would be a problem with the RC, and yes you can install from a DVD (is that not how you did it with the beta?).

Yes you can burn the ISO to DVD with something like UltraISO, PowerISO, Image Burn, Nero or even the native support for burning ISO in Windows 7 which can be access by right clicking the download ISO and selecting Open with and Windows Disc Image Burner.

You will have generic driver pre installed with windows but you may want to install your motherboard chipset drivers etc. if you have them, if you are installing drivers make sure you use Vista one if available or Windows 7 drivers would be even better but so far the only drivers I have seen so far specifically for Windows 7 are the Nvidia drivers.
