Default Manual Tranny won't shift!!!! Help!!

I have a 98 ranger with V6 4.0L engine and 5 speed manual tranny. I was driving it today and when I went to shift from third to fourth gear it locked into neutral and wouldn't shift. I had to pull to the side of the road and force it into first. It makes a grinding noise when it's in first or second even when the clutch is fully depressed. Can anybody help me?!

Yeah, either the master or slave cylinder failed.
