Hello, welcome smore !

I just got this camera....1.01A...
soooo what do I do?

Your camera & fw version is supported by CHDK,
now you should read a little in the CHDK wikia, e.g. start with the FAQ, then go on with "CHDK for dummies"...

After that:
-Download the CHDK for your SD1100 fw 1.01A from the autobuild server (wikia, "Downloads"; use the "complete" package).
-Use Cardtricks to format your SD card (max. 4 GB), make the card bootable, unzip the downloaded CHDK complete package to the card.
-To start your camera with CHDK LOCK the card...

 (you'll find all needed links in the wikia)

where it is suposed to say No Error or whatever mine says E18

No, doesn't matter - your camera had a little problem some time ago, e.g. the lens was blocked while power on - but this is only a historical log.

Just download Cardtricks, prepare your card (format + make bootable), download CHDK from the autobuild server.
Then install CHDK with Cardtricks: click "CHDK -> Card" and select the download package.
Then lock the card & put it in the camera; maybe you have to press the shutter button once to change from playback to record mode...
