What are ideal command-line ffmpeg options, used to back up DVDs and AVIs to x264 mp4 files?

I have backed up several DVDs and AVIs to a large hard drive, which is running low on space. I would like to convert some of these to x264 mp4 files, which will be played on both a 720p screen and an iPad's 1024x768 screen.
What command-line settings would you recommend for backing up 480i and 480p DVDs and 480i AVIs to reasonably-sized x264 mp4 files?
For DVD backups, is it possible to keep multiple audio tracks in one mp4 file (to listen to alternate-track commentaries, for example)?
Alternatively, should I use handbrake, instead? And if so, are there any recommended adjustments there to presets?
Thanks in advance for your advice.
