Simple twist

So, based on this sketchy info, am I correct in thinking a simple barrel tweak will move the derailleur away from the chain a snick?

Oh, is there a book that goes over bike care and feeding that folks find useful?
Yes, just turn the barrle 1/4 turn and see what happens. If it gets worse, turn it the other way and repeat until it's sorted. Be sure to keep track of how much you turn it in case you need to get "back to zero" afterwards.

Zinn and the Art of Bike Maintenance is an oft recommended book. The Park Tool web site has step by step instructions on just about everything. Bike Tutor web site has videos for the major items you might need to do.
