Why can't I shift 2003 Cav manual transmission into any gear?

2003 Cavalier with manual transmission lost ability to shift while shifting from 1st to 2nd. The shifter feels loose now and I am unable to shift into any gear. I am able to move the shifter into the correct positions, but feels loose- like something (shifter linkage?) has become disconnected or broken, and does not move manual transmission into any gear at all. What do you think? Where can I find a free diagram to isolate suspected components?
