Chicken and Egg Problem Learning Emacs

You're going about this in the wrong order.
Get emacs and emacspeak running, then learn Emacs as you
need it using the wealth of online documentation-- which
will all be fluently spoken to you by Emacspeak.

Simply staying in the dos world and stretching out one
finger into linux land is like sitting in an armchair 
and staring at a white cane hoping that it will make you
mobile-- it wont --until you lift up that cane and swing it.
