Default 96 Acura GSR-clutch/tranny issue?

Something is up with either my clutch or tranny. It is very hard to get into any gear, and the clutch is not disengaging, or it is engaging very low to the floor. Most of the time when in first with pedal all the down it still wants to move/bounce. I tried changing the clutch fluid, but that did not help at all. Any suggestions on what to check next, and how do I check to see if master/slave cylinder is ok or not. Thanks for your help.....I will try adjusting it but it looks as though it is almost all the way out....let me go see if there is anymore adjustment.....I adjusted it all the way out, which was not much. It seems a little better but it still wants to go when in 1st and the pedal is depressed to the floor......argh!

have you tried actually adjusting the clutch rod itself (the rod that links the clutch pedal to the hydraulic mastercylinder. if the clutch is not fully disengaging when at the floor, then the distance on the clutch rod between the clutch pedal and the firewall needs to be shortened (achieved by turning the tensioning nuts on the clutch rod clockwise), and this will in turn move your actual clutch "pedal" upwards more, allowing you to push the pedal down more to get more release of the pressure plates in the clutch.
