Why is my car's clutch pedal stuck to the floor?

I have a problem with the clutch pedal staying down. I am being told this is a gearbox problem. What do you think?

Could be a number of things. Faulty clutch cable, railing cylinder or (if it's a hydraulic clutch) a lack of fluid. I would suggest getting it checked by a qualified mechanic.
