Power steering leak

Today when I drove back from work I heard a noise coming from the engine and I noticed the steering was getting kinda notchy. the closer I got to the house the more difficult it became to turn. So when I got home I opened the hood and saw the power steering fluid reservoir was empty, which was strange as I had checked it this weekend and it was still fine, but I filled it and started the car and turned the wheel to se what it does. The fluid almost empties faster than I can fill it and the "leak" (or flood seems a better word) seems to be coming from the steering rack itself. I will have to lift the car to say for sure, but it is leaking under the driver side by the rack itself not from the power steering pump. Anyone want to venture a guess as to what it can be?
