It's been a long time since I've done it, but back then I believe I used DVD Decrypter to copy and decrypt the files from the DVD onto my hard drive, followed by AutoGK to compress it into a smaller format (XviD usually, DivX can be used as well). It should be a pretty straightforward process, though it will take a number of hours for the compression to complete, depending on the speed of your computer. There's tons of help out there if you run into any problems.
EDIT: I shouldn't need to mention this, but I will anyway. Don't do this with DVDs you don't own (i.e. Rentals or Netflix or your friends' DVDs), and don't distribute the digital copy to others, for obvious reasons of copyright law.
