Apart from learning the language itself, I found it very distracting to have to look for the keys on my (PC-) keyboard. Learning to type without looking is time spent wisely IMHO. Here's a (free) website that helps you do just that. When you go there, look for the first combobox (drop down list) on the left and choose the language you understand best. The rest should become clear if you then read the intro. Here's the website in English: http://www.typingstudy.com/en-russian-1/
