Try opening emacs directly into dired.  Then, all "close" (except
close emacs (C-x C-c), commands will bring you back to a dired screen.

I open my Slackware emacs (Gnu Emacs 24.3-no-X11) with:

dired /

Then, all other features work, but they all go back to dired upon
closing.  Otherwise, you are likely to end up on a "scratch" screen.
