how do i play this chord?

not sure if my hands are too small but what da hell.
http://screencast.com/t/xPwiWSuB

i bar the e, B, G strings on the 6th fret, ring finger on the B string, middle finger on the D string, and pinky on the A string.

my problem is that my ring finger always sliders down to the 9th fret when i put my pinky on the board.

-----------------
i can play this chord, but just not that clearly (my pinky is well above the fret)
-----------------
also- what chord is this?

Shallow and pedantic.

You've got the fingering right, now it's just practice. It's a tricky chord, no doubt.

As for what chord it is, that's probably debatable depending on context but the way I'm seeing it, it's an Eb7.

you're playing it with the correct fingering. try to make a larger stretch between your third and fourth fingers.

it's a Gš triad.
