CHDK for Canon SX120?

Hi,

I've done some research (a lot actually), but I'm still not sure where to start.  I want to get the chdk on my canon sx120, but I can't figure out how to do it.

Can someone give me some basic step by step instructions?

Thanks!

And I only want longer shutter speed times.  I don't care about anything else.

I'm not exactly sure what I have to download in that link.  When I click on the build, I get a list of files.

I just realized...we need a card reader to make this work?

Yes. It's very difficult to transfer files (other than jpegs) to a camera directly.

Make sense.  I just ordered one off ebay.

I just did the steps (cardtrick) and it doesn't seem like anything changed.  Is there another file I need to download or something?

Nevermind, got it working (can see the battery meter and everything, but I still can't figure out how to use the stuff.  If I want my shutter times longer, it still only goes to 15seconds max.
