Hey all again. I was trying to install an old RX100 rear derailleur on my bike when I noticed there was no barrel adjuster. I found a site with some (http://aebike.com/product-list/shimano-b367/cable-adjustment-assembly-t518-qc30/), but they're all the same price, and none of them are for the RX100 derailleur. Are these all interchangeable?

The Dura Ace 9 speed or Ultegra 6500 assembly will work for you.

I forgot to mention that this is a 7-speed derailleur...

Doesn't make a difference.

You might consider an inline barrel-adjuster that installs anywhere on the cable leading to the rear-derailleur. I use these for front-derailleurs, and would on the rear if my RD's lacked one as in your case.
The top two here are what I use - they work great:
And here's one in action on my FD-cable:

well he could use an inline but he still needs a housing stop on the derailluer. almost any shimano derailluer adjusting barrel will work
