Chain hitting front derailleur

Hi, we are trying to assemble the Mercier Galaxy SC2 (http://www.bikesdirect.com/products/..._al_xi_sc2.htm) and have hit upon a little problem with our front derailleur. We had to adjust the height of the derailleur and also make it parallel to the cassette. But, in the lowest gears and the highest gears, the chain hits the derailleur, despite us adjusting both limiter screws. Adjusting one may fix the problem on one side (e.g. in highest gear), but then it makes the problem worse on the other side (e.g. in lowest gear). Any ideas on how to fix this? Also, I noticed the cable tension is really tight. Does this affect anything? Should we loosen it and readjust everything?

Thanks in advance for your help.
