IGNITION PROBLEM - KEY WILL NOT TUR

1997 Oldsmobile Cutlass

Interior problem
1997 Oldsmobile Cutlass Engine Size unknown Front Wheel Drive Automatic 80000 miles

When I turn the key to start the car, the key does not turn at all. I have tried turning the wheel, pumping the brakes, making slight adjustments to the key position. None of this has freed the ignition. Several people I have spoken to have suggested I replace the ignition cylinder, but I can not seem to find a position in which I can get it out. Online instructions suggest I drop the steering column. How do I go about doing that?

Thanks!
