Removing paint from linoleum

I recently purchased an old house built in 1930. The kitchen has linoleum floors and while painting the kitchen cabinets (special oil based paint formulated to paint over formica cabinets) paint was dripped on the linoleum. I have tried mineral spirits, goof off, bleach, etc. and nothing will remove the paint. I have been able to remove some of it by scraping and using steel wool, but I am afraid of scratching the finish--plus it still didn't get down into the grooves of the linoleum. Does anyone have an idea of anything else to use?

I don't, but you might want to post on the painting forum also. There are some professionals there who might be able to help....
