Default messing with old setup

I've been messing with my old set-up to try and learn all I can about it for the future when I get a new set-up. How do you make sure the bindings are centered on the board? So you don't slide one way or the other.. I've only taken it out on a little slope (just trying to get a stance down). It seems the board slides the way I'm facing (I'm goofy) so my question is.. how do I fix that?

more than likely your board slides towards your toe side because that is the direction your shoulders are pointing. if you're on a flat base your board will try and rotate in response to your shoulders and hips. if you stay on edge you shouldn't be rotating.

a easy way to tell if your bindings are centered is to strap in and see if you have equal amounts of toe and heel overhang.

There is definitely toe overhang. It doesn't seem like the heel overhangs at all, really. How do I fix that? The board is a Burton cruzer bl and burton freestle v11.0 bindings.

Can you move the heelcup back? That's the only thing I can think of that would center your boot more.

just unscrew the bindings and move them back towards your heel edge. most, if not all discs give you the ability to adjust the bindings.
