[200q20v] gear shifting problems

this just suddenly(past day or two) cropped up...it's getting really 
difficult to shift my car, and the shifter feels very different; 
seems to "float" a lot more when the stick is in neutral, whereas 
before, even in neutral, you could "feel" things moving around and 
the shifter had some resistance.

1st is so-so; 2nd gear I am -constantly- missing; it never full 
engages and grinds the gears.  3rd is now showing signs of the same; 
4th/5th seem to be fine.

Once the car is in gear, the  shifter seems fine and shows the usual 
"in gear" play.  But getting into the gear is a royal PITA.

Reverse as always, never likes to engage.  5th once in a blue moon 
refuses to go.

What do I look for?  I'm short on tools+time at the moment, and I 
need to be back in NY tomorrow.
