    You'll have to rip the DVD in a format the iPod can play and then add it to iTunes and you're good to go.

    I'm not sure if mentioning the programs that rip DVD's are against the forum rules or not, but you can quickly find out by either doing a quick search on these forums or Google how to.

    Download Handbrake. It'll have an option to convert the DVD to an iPod Touch/iPhone format (MP4). Rip the DVD (it can take an hour or two) and then move the converted file to your iTunes library. Finally, sync your iPod up and you should have the movie.
