Manual Clutch advice needed

Hi, I'm here in the UK and have just brought an ex lease 270 Cdi Diesel with manual transmission (with Fuel here at $12/gallon including the rest of europe! diesels are the most sought after.)
The car has done 89k miles and I brought it over the phone without viewing (direct from the lease company, as such the price was very low for this model)
Car is faultless, apart from the clutch (its a stick shift-manual), the biting point is very low, just off the floor.
Does this mean the clutch is shot (the high mileage is mainly freeway, as the computer showers the average speed has been over 40mph, and 47 mpg overall)

My guess its thats is either the clutch slave cylinder or clutch master cylinder, have either of these got a reputation for failing?
and how big a job are these to change, especially the slave unit, whats the access like?

I have also brought a Command system for the w209 on ebay, am I right in thinking these can be turned into DVD players by entering the engineering mode and changing the settings?

Thanks in advance
