    you probably have a leak, a bad booster would stop but have a firm pedal

    also pull the drums and check the wheel cylanders, they tend to leak from there, and make sure all bleeder screws are tight

    sounds like something is leaking, that is a sealed system a soft pedal is onething but to the floor sounds like trouble.

    also just thinking, it could be a internal leak within the master cylander
