How much time to allow to refinish hardwood?

I've been looking into renting a random orbital floor sander from Home Depot to do the floors in my house.

The square footage of the hardwood is about 600 sqft. Some of the floors are pretty worn.. while other areas are in pretty good shape. I figure as long as I do something they'll look better than they are. Plus, I haven't officially moved in yet.. so, now would be the time to do it... before the furniture gets in there.

I've never done this before, so, I've got no point of reference on how long it would take.

Can anyone give me an idea how long I should allow? An afternoon, a day, a weekend?

from breakfast till supper with a half an hour for lunch is what it took me for about the same sq.ft. took the sander back after lunch. (and always get more paper for the sander than you think you will need, because you'll need it!)
