get bootable iso from install disk


I have a legal, shop bought windows 7 ultimate install disk and am worried that it could get scratched etc, seeing as i have a long and frightful history with CDs and DVDs.

Is there a way that i could copy the contents of the DVD install disk to my harddrive as an iso? Preferably bootable, as well?
