Where's the Lore leading up to ToR?

In my browsing, I've seen that The old Republic takes place about 300 years after KOTOR, and that tension rises between the republic and empire...

Is there anything more specific? And perhaps a quick summary of the major lore in KOTOR so I feel up to speed with this new game?

On the navigation bar near the top of your screen, go to:

GAME INFO -> THE HOLONET -> TIMELINE

The Holonet and Knights of the Old Republic 1 and 2. And comic books, etc.

There was recently a book published about Revan, which takes place some time before either of these games, if I recall.

About 300 years prior, just after KOTOR. It is really good, Drew Karpyshyn is a great writer, and the story in the book is relevant to events in the game.
Main - Imperial Agent, Operative
Alt1 - Republic Trooper, Commando
Alt2 - Sith Inquisitor, Sorceror
Alt3 - Jedi Knight, Guardian

Star Wars: The Old Republic: Revan (3,956 - 3,951 BBY)
Star Wars: The Old Republic: Decieved (3,653 BBY))
Red Harvest ( 3,645 BBY)
Fatal Alliance ( 3,643 BBY)

Those are the books prior to the game. I recently read Revan, and are now plowing through Decieved. (Just read about the sacking of Corruscant)

SWTOR takes place in 3643 BBY

You can find the plot summaries on wookieepedia.
