your knees are going to be relatively safe in snowboarding, especially if you don't plan on doing a ton of freestyle stuff and jumps.

most important advice I can give you to prevent injuries is take a lesson, or two. One or two private or semi-private lessons should give you a solid enough foundation to develop your skills and will help keep your falling down to a minimum; and there's plenty of data out there that suggests you're at greater risk of injury if you've never taken a lesson.
