Is it possible to get close to the quality of a movie like when you put it in your cd rom by streaming it off the internet on a regular dsl connection?

Not quite. You can compress a full length movie (2 hours or so) with DivX to 700Mb. Thats 716800Kb in 7200 seconds, or 100K/sec download required. If you lower the quality or resolution a bit, you might be able to get somewhere though.
This is all assuming that the server has no upload limit, and that you can stream an AVI file (which I believe you can) to a suitable media player (WMP won't like it much).
