I'm trying to adjust my rear derailleur, but I'm hearing a slight crunching sound from the chain on the cassette. It's not very loud. Is this unavoidable, or did I screw something up?

Yes, it should. Also, if you didn't already move screws on derailleur, don't. These are adjusted upon instalation and should not need to be adjusted again unless something gets bent. If adjusted wrong, can cause serious damage to driveline.

uh oh... I think I adjusted them correctly, before I did the pulley wasn't correctly aligned with the sprocket.

Just make sure that the H limit does not allow the derailleur to shift over the last cog, which will cause the chain to get jammed between wheel and cassette. Bad things can result!!!
