Our mortgage interest is from a common mortgage for our cooperative, for repairs to the building, not for our unit. Is this a home equity loan?

The coop took out the loan from the bank. On the 1098 our coop is named as the Recipient/Lender

Payments on the co-op mortgage, to the extent attributable to your ownership, are deductible mortgage expenses (an itemized deduction) the same as if they were on a mortgage you used to purchase your interest. 

 

Mortgage interest, refinancing, property taxes and mortgage insurance are all under the Deductions and Credits tab for "Your Home."

Hi - when I'm entering the information for my common mortgage for our cooperative, it asks if someone co-owns the loan. Should I say yes? And if so, it asks for the name and address of the other person who helps pay the loan - which is all of the other shareholders in the cooperative. What should I enter?

You would answer no to the question regarding co-owners, since the form 1098 is only reporting your share of the interest.
