If the pedal is still firm then the cable is fine, it may need to be adjusted. Which can be done under the car where the cable connects to the shift fork on the drivers side of the bell housing. The cable may already be adjusted all the way out, in that case you maybe can just replace the cable which is fairly easy and cheap. If you end up just needing the cable I advise you to get an aluminum quadrant to replace the stock plastic one which is very weak, and add a firewall adjuster so you don't have to get under the car to make clutch adjustments.

What kind of adjustments can be made then? Like the pressure of the clutch or what? I assume have a cable for a clutch "line" is alot easier to manipulate than an actual fluid line..

Free play adjustment is all you can do. Does the pedal have a little free play or a lot? If its only a little free play you may have a transmission issue. If you have a lot of free play/slack in the pedal the clutch is not fully releasing and thus not allowing you to change gears. If you have close to no free play in the pedal you may have an issue with the synchronizers in the tranny.
