Truest form to rip CD?

I have an audio test tone cd that I would like to:

A) make multiple copies of on cd
B) archive on my hard drive
C) transfer onto a dedicated iPod

What can I do in order to loose no fidelity when compared to the original disk?
I am familiar with windows media player, can I rip it using the WAV lossless method or use the windows media audio lossless way? Once on the hard drive do I just burn to disk or is there another step I need to do??

TIA

So FLAC is a very popular lossless format. You can use free programs like Exact Audio Copy to rip your CD accordingly:

However, the one catch is that I'm not certain if iPods/Apple will play FLAC files. I'll let someone else chime in on that matter, but the above will definitely get you started to accomplish A & B.

I think I'm Forest Gumping my way here....

I've seemed to have been able to import the disc into iTunes as a WAV by messing with the import settings and then simply manually dragging each track to my iPod.

If you are doing test tones - sine waves of constant frequency and level, they will be reproduced with extremely great accuracy regardless of compression type. It's the variances in the waveform that challenge the compression algorithms.

Just rip it at 256kbps or even 320kbps and it will be fine.

Of if you are just making a audio CD, just make a straight digital copy of the CD. That's lossless and uncompressed as well. On your computer, that would be a 44.1KHz, 16-bit stereo WAV file.
