Ripping vs. Transcoding

In terms of the workload on a system, what's the difference between ripping a DVD (that is, taking a DVD and copying it to the hard disk) and transcoding it (taking the DVD and changing it to a different format)? This is a question that some of you have been pondering following my post yesterday about the hammering that simultaneously transcoding six DVDs gives a dual quad-core Xeon system.
