It's not-it's a mild steel driveshaft, but IF you're lucky, it'll have what I think is a hard chromed spline. Some did, most didn't.
However, if it's actually
moved an inch, it's not the driveshaft stuck-it's the gearshaft stuck and it's probably pulled on the linkage too hard, hence being stuck in gear.
Either that or it's separated and gone back together wrong... If it's about 10mm, it could well be the driveshaft stuck. It won't be bolts-it'll barely move at all if there's a bolt still in.

Read the above-I need to see what you've done, then I may be able to help. It's impossible without pics.
