```Enrique,

First discover the relationship between your list a and b. If b is a subset
use Position.

(see below for data)

In[ ]:=
Position[a, Alternatives@@b]

Out[ ]=
{{3},{4},{11},{14},{22},{23},{25},{27}}

Then use the position information with the function Extract to transform a.

In[ ]:=
Extract[a,{{3},{4},{11},{14},{22},{23},{25},{27}}] == b

Out[ ]=
True

The important thing here is not to get your hands dirty.
