Definately sounds like your power steering isn't working or the belt isn't on.
At any rate you should do what Jayman said... And even though the power steering may not have been removed altogether the past owner may have just removed the belt and run it that way.
Your description sounds Exactly like "No power steering..."
PS when you test drove the car BEFORE you bought it, did you even think to ask about this? Why not ask the last guy what he did to the car? I'd have him write a whole list of EVERYTHING that has been done...
