To determine if it is the Brake booster, push the brake pedal down repeatedly about 5-10 times when the car is off. Then with your foot still on the pedal, start the car, and if the pedal should move and go down a bit to the floor, you need a new booster. If it doesn't move, then check your vaccum connections from the brake booster to the vacuum tree. The booster can be purchased at any local autoparts store.
