Yes, Sir, you can. E.g. http://wiki.cyanogenmod.com/index.php?title=HTC_Dream:_Rooting
Details depend on what OS you're currently on etc...'root' a bit around the web for a guide.
'Is it safe'? I never bricked an iPhone while jailbreaking it, but the only time I used Apple's official update service, an iPhone 4 died. Dito I flashed countless branded Nokias with generic firmwares without probs. But I did have problems once with the official software updater. Sh** happens, as they say. Back up your apps and files before you root. The Dream is quite mature and has been rooted for ages, so any risks should be minimal at this point.

It’s pretty easy and should only take around 30 minutes. But agreed - back up before trying it.
