Best Advice: Take a PRIVATE or semi-private lesson, don't try and figure it out on your own. About 12 years ago I tried to figure it out on my own. I got very frustrated, hit my head pretty hard, turned my board in for some skis, and never tried it again until this season.
Prior to taking a semi-private lesson with my wife, I watched Beginner Snowboard Lessons and I caught on to the lesson real quick. The instructor told my wife that I progressed quicker than anyone he's seen before. I tack it all up to learned as much as I could before going on.

Take one day and only ride switch. Strap in switch, get on the lift switch, get off the lift switch. This is how I learned it and it worked well, for me at least.
I don't think you need to learn how to ride switch early on. I learned after I was pretty good riding normal stance. If I'm going to say something on the subject I would say learn switch after you're a solid snowboarder in your natural stance. Then you already know how to do it so I think it's easier.
