Farther - denotes physical advancement in distance. (Europe is farther than USA, when it comes to travelling from Brazil.)

Further - denotes an advancement to greater degree, as in time. (If I want to achieve my goals and go further in my career, I need to study much more.)
Further can be used for talking about an additional thing or amount (I have nothing further to say on the subject.)

Further :) information is available from this short video (4 min): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ytGzJbu4mPE
