As everyone else has said, the RC (and Next and Master) builds work exactly like the regular stable build. After it first loads, you are given a screen with the license agreement. Once you check the checkbox to agree to that, you can install it or create a portable version. You can also choose "Continue", which keeps running the new version, you can use it just like a portable version (there are a couple of limitations with portable versions, such as not working on secure screens like the Windows logon screen).
If you install the RC build, when the final stable version is released, it will prompt to update to that (or any other RC build in the meantime - occasionally we go to RC2 if problems are found) and then you'll be back on the "stable" branch.
