You'll probably want to use EAC, all info can be read here:

It's pretty easy, check back if you need help

^That's the link you want. I set up something called flacattack along with EAC. Make sure you rip with cuesheets, which will parse the songs for you during playback. I also like Foobar for FLAC-with-cuesheet playback. There are instructions all over this site, but I will say that the setup was less than straightforward & took some experimentation to get everything the way I wanted it.

...or you download FLAC and put it wherever Foobar expects to find flac.exe: FLAC - download

Though personally I've done a two-step process of using EAC to rip WAV files first, and then I use MediaCoder to transcode to FLAC.
