Upgrade from Beta 2 (5384.4) to future builds?

Can you do in-place upgrade from Beta 2 to future RC and finally RTM builds,
or clean install required for each beta until RTM?

It is never a good idea to attempt to upgrade from
a beta version to the RTM.

Its possible that build to build upgrades of the beta will be supported in
the software, but the scenario is not supported or recommended since unknown
problems can take place that will make it complex to diagnose issues. No,
the RTM will not support upgrades from the betas/RCs.

Totally not recommended.

Running Vista Beta > Clean installation
Running XP > Upgrade
Running WS03 > Upgrade

You can't upgrade from a Server operating system to a client operating
system.
