linoleum flooring stuck on a cement floor

Working on a downstaair long, narrow bathroom. Old, old lineoleum flooring adhered to cement floor. We have tried everything to get the flooring up, but it won't budge! We can get some of the top vinyal off, but the backing is stuck to the cement. ??? What would the best bet be? Tile, Vinyal, linoleum....??? Need some help

You could just skimcoat and put some IVC vinyl or something similar over the top.

A floor scraper (sharpened) will work fine. If not pour self leveling over the area to smooth it out.
