clanking noises

my rear derailuer makes quite a bit of noise when i have it on the 24th gear (3 x 8, it's my highest gear). it sounds like my chain is slipping off the gears in the back. that noise it makes doesn't sound too good for my chain or derailuer. anyone got tips on what it could be and how to fix it?

First of all, verify that the noise is coming from the rear derailleur (it could be the front too). Then try adjusting the rear derailleur limit screws so that the chain is properly centered above the cog: see
