There are third-party tools which will compress on the fly, but I don't recommend this as you'll be waiting a long time. I put together a quad-core machine a while back to convert on the fly from Lossless to MP3 but even then it wasn't an acceptable speed for me.

The other way to do it is: iTunes allows a simple right-click 'convert to...' option on any track, or selection of tracks. In order to bring up that option, you must set the target file format and bitrate in the Import options (i.e. the format to rip to). So say you selected 128K MP3 there, you'll be able to go to a track or a selection, right-click and it will say 'convert selection to MP3'. That will then convert the selected file(s).
