Shimano FD are made to work with compact and normal cranksets. If you have a Shimano 105, ultegra, or Dura-Ace you should be a good and then it's just a matter of adjusting the position. If it's a braze on (which i assume it is) lower the FD until it is about 2mm from the chainring teeth. This should give the FD the ability to pull the chain up onto the large chainring.
