Well, as long as this is for backup and not piracy you can do it. Some popular programs for ripping include Mac the Ripper and Handbrake. Handbrake will also let you encode your DVD's to a format that iPods or AppleTVs can read.

You can also pop in a DVD and use OS X's built in Disk Utility to make an image of a disk that you can use to copy or make a DVD Master.

Mac the Ripper

Despite it's slightly odd name, I have heard very good things about Mac the Ripper(Click the link to be taken to it's website.
It's free. Free is good. I have downloaded it, though I have yet to give it a test run.
