Angry clutch issues!! help me out guys!

hey all.. i got an 01 330ci 5spd.

here it goes... i was on highway 101 last night, just cruising in 5th gear.. everything was going fine, no acting up at all.. a couple cars came up and i wanted to pass them. So i attempted to downshift to 4th. i hit the clutch pedal and tried to get into 4th but couldnt, i said WTF? and tried to go back into 5th and couldnt... at that point my clutch pedal felt wierd. it had no resistance at all untill it got close to the floor, it felt like it hit a stop or something, i cant press it all the way down. needless to say, i was stuck in neutral and i coasted to the off ramp where i was safe. i cant get the car in any gear unless the car is off. Is my clutch gone? maybe slave or master gone bad? or clogged up? its got 135K but im not sure if it has had a clutch done since i am not the origional owner. it seems to me that the clutch feels like it is engaged at all times and i cant get it to disengage. anyone had this happen to them??

FYI: i havnt had the chance to really start looking at it since this happend last night. i will get it up on jacks tomorrow.
