Problem getting CHDK to work on Canon S5

Okay, so I loaded the CHDK on to my card using Card Tricks program. Now when I turn on my camera, and try to override the shutter speed (or anything else of that matter), and press the shutter button, it comes up with this scrolling message: 'This is a default script. Scripts run when shutter is pressed in ALT mode. Press Shutter To Exit'.

What does this mean? It never takes a picture, I just don't understand it. Most of the time it would just turn itself off. It is the right build for my firmware, as I have double checked. If anyone could help, please fire away, I'm completely lost!.......
 
Silly Newbie...:D

This is a default script. Scripts run when shutter is pressed in ALT mode.

It means that you started the default script, which run when the shutter is pressed while in alt mode.

Press the alt-button again to leave alt mode, then you can take your photos..

Oh, and reading around in the wiki a little could help. ;)
