Jay, we need close up pictures to be able to assist you.

Does your RD have a claw? or is there a hanger that is part of the frame?

you need the silver piece shown in my picture, and the bolt this slides in your dropout to align the derailleur

you have a claw type RD.

and the screw that goes with it.

Where are you located? I have a few of them for projects.

I have that piece but how does it hold the derailleur to the bike?

look at my picture, the silver piece should be turned 180 degrees from the picture. the radius fits the radius of your dropout. bolt head to the outside, radius part to the inside, slide it your dropout and clamp down. replace wheel. Your chain goes around your cogs, around the front on the top pulley, then around the back of bottom pulley to the bottom of the front rings. The little radius part has lip on it, this lip is what clamps it your drop out. here is web pic that may help. I cannot offer you any better pics as I do not have any of this type of equippement.
