Just bought my first board! Now I have stupid questions.

I just bought a Salomon Ace Magnum board today. It's a wide, 162cm board. I'm 6'1" and about 205 pounds. I also bought some nice Salomon boots, and some Sims bindings. I think that I would like my left foot to be my forward foot. What kind of angles should I set the bindings at to start? When I strap in, it seems like there is a lot of pressure on the inside of my legs. Is this normal or do I need to move the bindings closer together? The stance feels good other than the pressure on the inside of my legs. Also, I know it's a stupid question, but the straps on the bindings go on the outside, right? The board has 4 rows of holes, and I attached each binding to the middle two rows of holes. I plan to hit the slope this weekend. Thanks for any tips!

Ok, when u first start try a duck stance such as front 15 and back -15. The pressure on the sides of your legs might be from your boots being to tight, I can't really think of anything. Yep, the straps go on the outside.
