Mickey, if you are lucky there is an easier way. Going through the same thing a couple of years ago I asked the guy at a local carpet store. He told me to go to the contractors tool rental place, and rent a tile chipper. It looks like a floor sander, only instead of a belt, the motor drives a vibrating chipper blade. One of the best uses for $25. I've found. Was able to remove 40 year old tile from a 13 by 35 foot basement room in a couple of hours. Good Luck !
