Rent a floor buffer with a carbide tipped wheel. Be careful of any cracks in the concrete as this will send the buffer and YOU flying.

Cut it into 4" strips and try scrapping with ice scrapper. If that doesn't work, rent a power scraper. How old is the flooring? If too old-might contain asbestos, can't remember what year they took it out of flooring materials. Google it-should be able to tell what year asbestos was removed from vinyl flooring and floor tile.
