a similaar thing happened on my cavalier when the cable snapped, check to see if there is a clutch cable, if the system is hydraulic has something similar happened? loss of hydraulic fluid or the like.

Audis have a hydraulic clutch system, with a master cylinder (in car on firewall) and a slave cylinder (outside on transmission) with a metal tube between them (which looks like a brake line). One of the cylinders may be blown or the trouble could be the clutch itself, but most likely one of the cylinders needs to be rebuilt.

How would a clutch disk be checked to make sure that it is installed the right way?

If the disc is installed correctly the clutch will engage and disengage smoothly. In most cases if the disc is installed backwards the clutch disc will bind against the flywheel/crankshaft bolts and not release resulting with a clutch that doesn't disengage. More than likely if the disc was installed backwards the disc is now damaged and will need to be replaced.
