install opensuse release candidate upgrade path to final release

I'm currently on opensuse 10.3 and will go to 11 when it comesout.

I was wondering whether I can install the V11 release candidate now and then upgrade to the full release when it comes out or would that be best via a new install?

I guess what I'm asking is will installing updates to the release candidate install make it the same as if I'd installed the final version?

Would I need to hack about with repositories or will the repositories automatically point to the latest version?

Only 2 weeks to go so not the end of the world but would have been nice to get started on installing it.
