Mechanical Woes – Front Crank

Swapping out a (junk) from crankset off of the Hardrock.  Was originally a Shimano FC-M191 (24/34/42).   Suprisingly difficult to get a hold of .  Ordered it off of, and it turned out they were sold out.  So they (no charge) upgraded me to a better front crank (click for link).

But the geometry doesn’t seem to line up, or I’m doing something wrong.  Specifically the front derailleur doesn’t seem to have enough travel to shift to the outermost ring, even if I crank its limit all the way out.  Does the front derailleur have to match the “parts group” of the front crank?  Anyone know?
