If you are going to repaint then all you have to do is "buff it up" so you take the shine off the old paint. If it's a wood door and you want it right down to the wood then you are going to have to use an electric sander (fine grit sandpaper) and do the major part of it and then hand sand (fine grit) any grooves the door may have. Seal it and stain it.

How do you prepare a door for painting?

If you can take the hardware off the door and the door right off the frame. If you can't then use masking tape and tape all the hardware. Door knobs can be taken right off (2 screws on each side.) If there is existing paint on the door and it looks OK and is the same type of paint you are planning on using (oil on oil or latex on latex ... water based paint) then you don't need to sand. If the door is in bad shape with a few little holes, heavy scratches, etc., then it's best to give the door a good sanding first and then be sure you wash off the dust with soapy water and it's dry if you are using oil based paint (you don't have to worry about the door being damp if you are using latex paint.)
