I would put the car in gear with the engine off. Try and roll it, if it rolls forwards/backwards. My guess its not going in gear even though the shifter moves around, broken shifter linkage, etc..Normally you won't lose all gears if the tranny goes, and if the clutch goes, normally can't get it in gear, or out of gear.

It seems to be the clutch. I have had the same problem on one car and it was the clutch.
