I really only use postgres to teach myself about SQL and postgres at the
moment, I will be setting up a new server for home use, so I wondered if
it would be practical to set up with 6.5 beta and upgrade when the final
version is released?

Are there likley to be database structure changes before the release...
Also, I have an existing database running 6.4.0, if I upgrade the binaries
to 6.4.2 will this require a dump/reload or will I just have to
stop/upgrade/restart the postmaster?

It doesn't run on an open source platform,
therefore it, by definition, does not matter.
