S100 Unable to "boot' from 8GB SDHC card

Please help ... I am not very good with computers.
I used ACID to find my version, downloaded the full beta zip file to my PC.
Format my 8GB SDHC card in the S100.
Unzip the contents of the zip file and copy everything as it is to the SDHC card. 
Put the card to Locked and insert into the S100.
Power on, and no CDHK loaded.
What have I missed?

You forgot to make the card bootable.
See http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/Prepare_your_SD_card , especially the link at the top to the STICK utility.

Thank you so much.  I got CDHK loaded finally.  STICK is very user friendly and easy; didn't know why I did not spot this utility when I started off.
