You would have to tell us what kind of adhesive and if the floor is bare wood, or has a finish like varnish or oil. If the adhesive can is still around, look on it for 'clean up' directions.
If you let the concrete dry on the ceramic, they have bonded. You can try to chisel it loose.

What is causing the vinyl on concrete floor on grade to rise up in places whenever you do laundry or when it rains a lot?
More than likely the adhesive bond has been lost allowing the vinyl to separate from the concrete substrate. The "Floor on Grade" and "Rains a Lot" comments may indicate that you you have vapor emissions coming up through the slab where they condense under the floor covering and the water is compromising the adhesive that was applied to hold the flooring product in place. Not an uncommon occurrence in a slab on grade. A razor… Read More
You can use muriatic acid, BUT it is VERY toxic in vapour form. Wear mask, goggles and good rubber gloves.
A lot of time when you pull the carpet up most of it comes with it. Carpet glues should release and you only need to scrap up the glue residue. If it doesn't then you will need to scrap it all up. There are machines you can rent to do this. They will cost around $80 for 4 hours. Otherwise invest in a good floor scraper for about $30. If you plan to paint or… Read More

I got this reference from http://foundationarmor.com and it worked!
Not a good idea in case the flooring separates or expands. I would remove the flooring first.

How do you remove old tile adesive off good quality thick floor tiles that have been laid recently with the wrong adhesive so they can be relaid?
You can't: unless they're very thick, most tiles will just break. The best you can do is use a thick base layer of new adhesive to cope with the irregularity of the old adhesive.

You can rent a large scraper ( a bit like a shovel) for this very purpose from HD or most tool rental stores.

You must remove the old epoxy coating before pouring the new floor, for otherwise there will be no bonding. If the epoxy coating is thin (e.g, paint) then it may be possible to remove it by hand sanding. If it is a thick coating, then sandblasting is probably the best method. In either case, appropriate dustmasks and other safety precautions are essential. Good luck
How can one detect if saponification has occurred in an adhesive used to lay vinyl floor on concrete?
It usually becomes more floating the longer the saponification has progressed. If it is still solid, it has not saponoficated. You can also smell it, and it will make you feel bad in your mucous and also headache.
Depending on the sub-flooring and the quality of the linoleum the job will be easy or a "Bear." It really isn't the floor covering that is difficult it is the adhesive used. the linoleum should come off relatively with little effort it is the adhesive that is tough.
