720 IS and FAQ page help

I have a 720 IS and am trying to install CHDK. I thought I was somewhat computer savvy until now. I am running into several problems with the FAQ and hope someone can help.

I have downloaded the allbest-a720-100c-50
I then found that there is no PS.FIR file so back to the FAQ to find the instructions on making a bootable disk for my SD card.

I go to the instructions and the first thing I see is to compile a g7_blinker file. I am thinking that this is for a G7 camera.

Question: Is it?
Question: what is it for.
Question: how do I compile it and with what do I compile it with? I am sorry but I have never done this before.

I decided to go to windows case 2 and the first sentence tells me to "Extract from above" well my question is extract what? from above.

When I click on Bootable.exe it takes me to a page that gives me a choice of several programs one of which is Bootable.exe, so far so good. When I click on it it takes me to a web page that is in another language and I don't know which one (language) in order to go to get a translation so I can download the file.

I do understand what to do with the program after it's installed but I don't know what to press to download it.

Down towards the bottom of the Bootable SD card page there are further instructions on the G9 blinker.

I would really like to get this installed in my camera for the being able to shoot raw and using it to zoom in movie mode

Can anyone help?

Carolyn

 You don't need to compile anything to install chdk on your card.
 Please read the FAQ section on the CHDK - CHDK Wiki
