"...there is a knob..." - barrel adjuster
"...that turns half turns..." - if you mean that by the clicks they usually turn 1/4 turns actually
if you unwind the barrel adjuster it will increase cable tension, wind it in it will decrease cable tension which in affect changes where the dealleur indexes due to the shifters stops. the cable most likely would have stretched from new and will probably need increased cable tension but just ride it, it might not shift up or down propperly and you'll need to adjust the tension for it to index right. if you cant figure it out take it to your local shop. you wouldnt believe the number of people we get that start adjusting cables and screws and not knowing what they do screw them up them come to us bitching and moaning that it wont work or that their deralleur has gone through the spokes or something stupid like that.
