Brake Booster, Or do I need to Bleed the Brakes?

What's up everybody...My 1989 Cherokee Limited is having a braking fit. The pedal is traveling all the way to the floor, making it impossible to drive it anywhere. I read my Haynes manual for the truck and it says that It could be one of two things. Either air in the brake lines, or a bad power brake booster. Any suggestions?

Thanks,

G

Its NOT the power booster. Its a hydraulic leak, probably in the MC, if the reservoir is full.

AZ,
Thanks for the tip. The M C is full, not leaking any fluid. So I should go about checking the lines that are connected to the M C, or do you think a NEW M C would be the way to go.
