varnished hardwood floors

Im redoing some very old hardwood floors. They are sanding up nicely.
Unfortunately around the edges of the room, the floors have been varnish or polyurethaned or something once long ago.
Ive tried paint-stripping and scrapping as much as I can off, but whats left is still gumming up the sander paper making it useless in a hurry.
Just wondering if anyone had any tricks from keeping the sandpaper from gumming up or getting off the old coating in its entirety.
I am using a belt sander.
