Rear Derailleur Adjustment help

Hey guys!

I've been trying to get my Rear derailleur on my cannondale to work like it should and I'm having way too much trouble.

I've consulted a book that I have as well as the park tool website only to be slightly more confused.

My questions are as follows:

I have a 10 speed setup and my chain hesitates between gears (ie, I need to go more than one shift to go up from smallest to next larger cog).

Also, I forget how to lower the tension of the cable so that I can move the housing off to lube the cables and to see what the pull of the RD is and to check my limit screw adjustments.

Also, what exactly does the b-screw do? I was messing with that and I didn't see either of the pulleys move.

Thanks for all your help!

This will hopefully "un-confuse" you a bit.

Do a search through the forums after you read this as you will likely find everything you need is already on here somewhere.

Hope this helps.
