There are very vew DOS-specific commands that you would need to learn to program in Java on a Win32 system. You really don't have to even know how to navigate a directory using DOS commands since you can use Windows Explorer. Don't worry about getting some sort of advanced education related to DOS.
P.S. Notepad is great, but you might also want to check out Textpad and Gvim if you get some free time.

thank you Dirk and Tom.
one more question: verbose - is it java's or dos's? the truth is a want to know dos at least a little. i do know how to navigate from directory to directory, but that's all.

I'm not sure I understand the question.
verbose is a possible switch to javac.
From the javac documentation:
-verbose
Verbose output. This includes information about each class loaded and each source file compiled.
