Cool, thanks! I can't figure out how to run a script on startup though.. Any pointers?
Also, doesn't the camera switch to shooting mode automatically when I press 'on'?
By this statement, I'm assuming you haven't actually tried to run CHDK yet?
When CHDK loads, it essentially starts the camera in playback mode (technically it restarts the camera). This is because CHDK does not know as it loads whether the camera was powered on with the On/OFf butt or the Playback button. If it was the playback button and CHDK were to start in shooting mode (extending the lens unexpectedly) this could be a problem. So CHDK always starts the camera in playback mode. You can get around this by holding the On/Off button down during startup until the lens starts to extend.

I have.. Running some random dev version compiled half a year back or so.
A refinement would be to only press 'left' twice when in shooting mode, not in playback.
