Question about 2003 Kia Rio
It does sound like your clutch has not gone. The easy way to check, is put he clutch the into gear with the engine off and try to start it. if the car tries to pull away it is the trust bearing. To test for this, stop the car, put it into nuetral, start the car, listen for a hissing sound. If when you press the clutch the sound goes, it's the bearing. Whatever, it's a box out job. Bearings are cheap, if the plate looks worn, change it. There is no way a car can loose syncromesh on all 4 gears at the same time. Don't panic. It's a cheap repair. Leat me know how you got on.

I have the same car, the only solution to this problem is to tighten the clutch cable nut just as necessary until you feel that you are able to shift smoothly without forcing it, make sure you start the car to test for that.
You might have to remove the air intake in order to access the clutch cable.
If you tighten the nut too much, your clutch will feel light and you will have clutch slips. So basically keep trying until you're there. You can loosen or tighten the nut while the car is running, I'd recommend.
