If it is RAC you can board the train. Depending on vacancy you may get a full berth, or it may get confirmed to a berth before you travel. Without even RAC one cannot board reserved compartment.

RAC is as good as confirmed ticket. Your ticket will be definitely confirmed, don't worry. You have at least half birth for sure.

Very less chance...RAC means reservation against cancellation..on your current ticket, you can board the train and have to share a seat with other person who also holds a RAC ticket ..TC can give you berth after departure of train, if he find any vacant or cancelled seat.
