Well, you can try very simply by pluggin your usb  cable into the camera and the computer, and activating the usb remote on chdk. Or even better, if you have a small usb charger, like for mp3 players.

The USB remote feature works well since the first beta version...http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php/topic,2468.msg30507.html#msg30507

No problem ;)
No, you don't have to do anything, just plug it to the usb port, which will give 5 volts to your camera, as a remote control would do. If it worked, you're ready to build your own remote!
