A sticky problem

I just ripped up some one old one-piece vinyl flooring. Around the edges, it was glued down.
There's residual glue when the flooring came up. I'm going to put down self-stick 12x12 squares. I was just wondering if anyone knew if the glue would cause any problems of if I should go get some glue remover and take it down to the wood.
TIA
Pat.

Leaving the glue equals doing a poor job. You need something like this: http://www.tiletool.net/Floor_Scrapers.asp
If the wood is or gets damaged you may want to fill the holes and the cracks and smooth the surface before tiling . PS: Why the xpost to architecture? There is nothing architectural in vinil tiles...

It won't be easy to get up if you can get it up at all. Lowes has a shit scraper, as big as a shovel but just a big ol piece of flat steel, you can sharpen and edge on it. More than lilely it will tear up the surface of the wood. Screw 3/8" plywood down, putty the seams, let dry for a couple days, sand the seams with a belt sander. Don't use stick ons, get the rolled stuff at Lowes - buy it a little bigger than you need. Remove the baseborad, install the roll - trim to fit, reinstall the baseboard. If this is a rental property you'll thank me.
