Paint steel doors

I have interior closet louvered doors which are steel and have been painted. I'm not sure what kind of paint. I'd like to re-paint with latex. Is there something I need to do to prep them?

Sorry we didn't catch this earlier.
If no rust, clean, lightly sand or us a de-glosser, prime, and paint.
If there is rust sand to remove rust, paint that area with a metal primer, then do as stated above.
