you can either use a hammer and a chisel or get a jack hammer to remove the tile. Then you scrape all the thinset off the floor. Alot of work, so prepare yourself. Have fun!

First things first here rollo. So far you haven't offered enough information to get an intelligent answer. There may be more to this than meets the eye.

First Question: What is under the tile?

Good point Bud. Concrete or wood subfloor with backer board?

Folks come to these forums after a stroll down the isles of the local Home Depot and don't really realize how much information is needed for them to get a viable response.

The more details right-off-the-bat the better.
