Get a good helmet and a full cage or visor. I know that someone will pipe up that you don't need the cage but then, you don't really need to see or have teeth either. Get used to them and make up your mind to the fact that they need to be there and you'll forget they are there in a very short time. Shin guards are great for the knees, falling sucks with elbow pads right behind. After a few stick sessions you'll get the rest anyway.

If you can get to a beginner's class, go. Even if you don't have puck skills, you'll start to see how others with little skill do things and the pieces will fall into place. Whenever you get the opportunity to free skate, take it and use it wisely.
