if i were you, being a (virtual) newbie, you still need comfort.
and so to this end....
get your board minus binders, put it on the floor and stand on it as if you were riding it. what you need is your dynamic stance and so your feet ought to be shoulder width or a bit further apart.
bounce up and down (without jumping) by flexing your knees, hips and ankles a bit (the rubber limbed gimp routine) as if you were riding that sucker. when you feel nice and comfy and you are sure you are stood in the centre of your board (ie your bollocks are above the board's centre or near as damn it) take a note of where your feet are and that is where to attach your binders.
as for the angles themselves, i would suggest a forward foot of +15ish and a rear foot of -3ish ('ish' refers to give or take a notch or two either way depending on what you prefer)
there is no right or wrong way. snowboarding is about self expression and so what works for you is self determined. set your board up with the mind that before long you will loosen it all to try something slightly different.
experiment, learn, enjoy. simple!
Just coz you don't understand it
Doesn't mean it makes no sense!
