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 :

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

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.

dear all, is good: joseki and game collection, the latter frequently updated. Also search facilities.

It is in English, though :)
