clutch or slave/master cylinder problem.

hey guys, this is my 1st post but iv been a longtime site stalker.

i drive a 97 4.0 wrangler. a few days ago i went to start my jeep, and when i pushed the clutch in to start it up (it was pretty tight). it "popped" and the clutch peddle lost tension for about 3/4 of the push, and the last 1/4 has some tension. when i push it the floor, and try to start it, the engine will try to turn, but only get like a 1/2 ot a 1/4 turn and quit. im thinking its the slave and master cylinder, but im not sure, iv never had to deal with a clutch before soo im going to youu guys (the pros) for some tips.
