Problem setting Up Bracketing on Canon SX-40 HS

Hello All;
My Canon SX-40 HS camera has bracketing capability as a standard feature, however it only saves these images as JPG's.
I have now installed CHDK on the camera and am able to save images in  the DNG format.
The problem that I have is in getting the bracketing function working within CHDK, I have spent several hours setting up this and other functions but nothing is working in regards to bracketing.
I am sorry but I am missing something somewhere, as it now stands I am able to take a one picture on my camera after making the changes to CHDK  and the camera just hangs after taking a test Image. I have to remove the battery to get the camera functioning again. If I remove the settings within CHDK that I set the camera functions fine. So somewhere I have made a error! 
What I want to do:
I would like to be able to shooting 3 images (+2, 0, -2 ) with the camera set to AV.
I will be using a tripod for these shots as movement could be an issue.
I want the output from the camera in a RAW format (DNG).

I can do this already minus the DNG file structure with my Canon SX-40 HS camera already.

Please bear with me as I am new to CHDK as you might guess and I have spent time with the users manual prior to asking this question.

Best Regards


Al

Have now found solution to the immediate problem, sorry for the false alarm!
Now off to CHDK to try and set up a few more preferences.
