Rough idea on costs to replace bathroom floor and subfloor

I am getting some estimates for work on a small bathroom about 5' x 8'. The floor right now is linoleum and is peeling at the sides pretty badly. The contractor says that the subfloor will need to be replaced.

He hasnt told me exactly what he will be replacing it with. I see some other discussions that talk about putting in a plywood followed by cement board etc. I am considering replacing the current floor with either tile or linoleum. My question is what should I expect in rough cost if I wanted to replace it with a) tile and b) linoleum.

How much of work is this really? Are we talking about 8 hours of work? 2 days of work?

Thanks.

Linoleum- $2.50/sqft

subflooring - $40-50, total

Hardibacker $15, total

Labor costs Linoleum should average about $6.00/sqft

I would strongly consider putting down insulation between the joists (if it is not there) and the use of radiant heat in the floor.
