Look for leaking fluid at the slave or master cylinder.
After you have located the clutch slave cylinder, have someone depress the clutch pedal. You should see the piston of the slave cylinder extend somewhat. If it does not, either the slave cylinder is bad, or the master cylinder, or, there is not enough brake fluid in the system for it to operate properly. Check the level in the master cylinder. If the slave cylinder is leaking profusely, it is probably bad.

Slave cylinders will typically leak when they're bad. If you're sucking air (getting air in the lines) or the brakes just don't engage when you press the pedal or if the brake pedal fades to the floor; it's a master cylinder.
Either it or the master is bad. Take the line loose on the slave, hold your thumb over the end and have someone push on the clutch. If the master is good, it will force fluid past your thumb. This means the slave is bad. If it doesn't, then it's the master cylinder that's bad. Slave may be also, but one thing at a time.
