As most professional bike-mechanics will tell you: The simplest and easiest way to adjust the FD is to start over. Reinstall the FD from start to finish. Trying to adjust a FD that's already been in use simply will fix one thing - then create another string of other problems. And this will drive you mad!

So follow the directions exactly from these two links:

and...

http://bicycletutor.com/adjust-front-derailer/

This should solve the problem.
