Unhappy NO STEERING

Anyone ever gotten into their truck, started it up, and had no steering? The wheel just spins. The brakes are acting normal, so it's not the pump, right? Thinking the gearbox crapped out? Or is there a link in the column that could have failed?
Thanks for any insight.

I would guess rag joint or gearbox but i'll let someone more experienced chime in.
