Snowboarding for the first time: Advice?

I'll be going snowboarding in late january for the first time in my life. I've never been skiing either so i'll be going into this a total newcomer. A long time snowboard and good friend of mine will likely be going with me to give me some pointers.

Advice? Do's and Don'ts? Hopefully I'll be snowboarding on the alps in no-time (seriously, I'm going abroad and plan to).
Check out my Company:

Despite six classes and two jobs, I keep going because I love paintball! A sincere thank you to all of my customers all over the world for the continued business. :)

If you have some sort of padded slider shorts wear them. Your tailbone will hurt from falling after the first time. Also wear moisture wicking baselayers.

Try watching some videos on the basics. Its sounds lame but it gives you stuff to think about doing while on the hill.

Be careful not to put your hand out behind you to brace falls. It's is the quickest way to get hurt. First time is going to be rough and you will be sore after, but work on one edge at a time (heels, then toes) and have fun. Be sure to have good pants and gloves and wear something for eye protection from the sun (sunglasses or ski goggles). Burned retinas really suck.

as an extension of Irockian's advice about wicking baselayers. don't wear cotton socks.
"The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the deadly light into the peace and safety of a new dark age."
