Have you tried to turn the fan to see if it is jammed?

If it spins easily it could be the contactor or capacitor. Or if there is some to a lot of resistance in turning the fan it may likely mean that the motor is shot and needs to be replaced.

Best bet is to call in a certified HVAC contractor to check the capacitor and motor as well as for any other possible issues and fix it.

To keep legal happy, let me just say that I am not an HVAC contractor, and you should never even look at your furnace without having a qualified, liability accepting HVAC contractor present.  To keep sales happy, let me just say that you can find an HVAC contractor that's happy to take your money here: http://www.furnacecompare.com/perl/find_contractors.pl.
