9.0-RC2 is (probably) going to be very similar indeed to the eventual
9.0-RELEASE. There will be some bug fixes yet to go in, but it is
unlikely these will be show-stoppers. RC2 is not "unsafe" and there's
no reason not to install it for learning or evaluation or development
purposes. I wouldn't advise using it for anything your livelihood
depends on though. Plan on upgrading to -RELEASE as soon as possible if
you do play with -RC2.
However, you're unlikely to have a pleasant experience if you've got
dodgy RAM in your machine. All bets are off if the computer cannot rely
on getting the correct data back from RAM. I wouldn't even try booting
up a live CD unless the memory problems have been fixed.
