What's the best thing to use, in terms of the program and format? I need the files to work on both Windows and Mac computers...

Are you ripping on Windows? If so, I think Exact Audio Copy is the de facto standard for ripping CDs. I'm on a Mac, so I use XLD.

As far as the file format, FLAC will probably get you the best compatibly as just about any good music player will play them. iTunes won't play them, so if you are using that you are better off with using Apple's ALAC format.
