need help getting DVDs to my iPod

I have a MAC OS X and I just got a new iPod with video and was wondering if it was posible to rip my DVDs onto my computer then transfer them to my iPod.
Thanks in advance for any help.

Handbrake and the new instant version are your friend.

How to rip DVDs for your iPod using Handbrake.

For most video files, I can recommend iSquint which together with KeepVid allows you to easily (2-step process) take any Youtube video and get it into ipod format.

I second Handbrake. Handbrake Lite is probably what you're looking for.

If you just copy files to the iPod like it's a hard drive, will they show up somewhere in the menus? (My last iPod, which lasted quite a while, was a 1G—I'm getting a 5G in a couple of days.)

oaf: No, unfortunately.
