Take a look at Chris Miller's 220 website....

There are some good pictures and instructions there...
for example:

http://members.aol.com/c1j1miller/body.html#Window regulator cable repair

If the cable is broken, and depending where it is broken, the window may
slide into the door.

If the window goes up s  l   o  w   l  y...I would venture that you are
experiencing either a pulley or motor issue

If you have the inner door panel off, make sure that the are no
obstructions, install the window switch, and operate the window.
That should help you further diagnose the issue.
