Turn the motor on. With the drivers door open start pushing it downhill, jump in, push the clutch in and catch it in gear (shift into 3rd then 4th). Drive to the nearest mechanic and let them fix it.

Sounds like you have no clutch fluid or the clutch master/slave cylinder is bad, there should be a small canister on the firewall somewhere near where you put the brake fluid, if its empty, put brake fluid in it and pump the clutch Untill it starts working again. But you will still have to figure out where the fluid went in the first place so of you're not to mechanically inclined I would recommend taking it to someone who is.
