Surface Rust/Rust Mort...teach me please.

I have allot of surface rust popping up through the primer on my car.And a large patch on the roof were body work was started and never finished(not me).
A freind of mine suggested I use rust mort on the car. I am limited on body tools etc.... as I nolonger have a garage or access to a compressor(DA etc//) just an electric palm sander and a dream(...or....nightmare???).
So what would be the best method of going about fixing surface rust.Do I sand as far down as I can get then rust mort???Rust mort then sand???
Any advice would be appriciated.
My goal at this point is just to stop the rust progression and cover the car in flat black primer. I can fix dents etc.... afterwards as I go.
