links - 围棋
1 - The best so far.
The link below sends you to a baidu / video search results page with a complete series of course for intermediate players 围棋教室中级(intermediate for Chinese standard means around 5k to 1d I would estimate). These videos are fantastic and work great in China, i'm not sure what's the speed like from outside China though, do give it a try!
2 - pre-requisite?
It's probably a good idea to print that page and just memorize whatever you can on it, most of it is bound to come up in the videos above. - It's incomplete, but that's our job :-)
3 - Kifu, (棋谱，qípǔ), game collections
I haven't found a site that'd work with Firefox yet, and this is the only site I use Internet Explorer for : http://qipu.games.sports.cn/list.html###
Click on 自动摆其 and watch free pro grames from China, Japan and Korea. Brilliant!

Great to find some other info on 围棋。
There is one site that I have particularly liked ever since I found it. It is http://gobase.org/.
It has a daily life / death problem of varying difficulty level. The site also has many games that you can view as well as go problems for all levels.
Great site. Requires a small one-time fee (I think $15 US), if you want to access everything, that is well worth it.
