there isn't really any other fault I can think of that would cause a total lack of resistance on the lever, if a selector has broken, you may still get some gears, or a hard jamming sensation in some directions, if the synchros have gone, it would crunch going into some gears (second and third are synchro faves) and total clutch failure would leave the gears feeling normal, but no / little drive
if the lever is no longer connected to the gearbox though, you will get exactly what you describe. I'd check the circlip that 916 mentioned, sounds bang on to me.
Be judged for the man you are, and the actions of your life, not the book you read or the statue you pray to.......
Never hold a grudge, its a sign of a small, petty person.
