Here is a response to a similar question FYI -

For linoleum glue (bearing in mind if older than about early to mid 80's may be asbestos containing) I would initially try wetting it lightly, else heat gun.

In retrospect, since the hardwood flooring will need resurfacing anyway after this (assuming you are not just putting laminate or carpet down) I would talk to the resurfacing company about having them do it - they might prefer to do it themselves to avoid damage to the wood, and might chemically strip it and the underlying wax/finish on the wood.
