Promax DSK-320

Hello. I have only a month old Cannondale F-5. So far the bike is working fine except that my rear disc brake is very weak and if for some reason I have to relay only on it for stopping I'm in trouble. Now I know that %80 or what ever percentage of your stopping power is in your front brake but since I paid so much money for a bicycle, the least thing I expect is both of my brakes to work.
Could any one tell me how to adjust the brake? My guess is that it is something very minor but I'm not very experienced with bikes so I have no idea what to screw and unscrew. Oh and in case you have missed it, the brakes I have are Promax DSK-320.
Thanks!

I believe bike shops have just recently begun offering a warranty on their new bikes. Dealers perform some repairs and adjustments to all new bikes sold! This fancy service should be in your area by now, the major metropolitan areas were obviously the first areas to "test market" this concept but I believe it has trickled down to the rest of the country by now.

Do you have to pull the brake level quite a ways before the brake engages? If so then turn the barrel adjuster on the brake lever to take some of that slack out of the cable. Also if you haven't already the shop you bought it from should have some kinda free 30 day adjustment on new bikes where they'll go through the brakes and gears now that things have been broken in.
