Yes. Apart from re-creating the DB and granting the DB user
privileges. I just use it for testing purposes. My suggestion would be
to backup the DB of your current alpha7 install, do a beta1 clean
install and use Migrate (http://drupal.org/node/915102) or a drush
script to populate the DB of the new beta1 site. That way you know it
will work with any beta, RC or stable release. Feeds could be another
approach, although, AFAIK, you'll need to get it into a CSV first.
