What equipment and chemicals do I need to strip carpet glue and paint off of a cement/concrete floor?

My sewer backed up and necessitated the removal of two rooms worth of carpet. I peeled the carpet back already, but now I need to get the glue and the three layers of paint off of the floor underneath (I think!) to prepare the floor for the installation of some sort of engineered flooring (bonus points: What type of flooring should I and my tight finances install here?)
I'm a new homeowner, so many tools that might prove necessary here are ones I haven't acquired yet. What do I need to accomplish this?
