No, it just runs sha512 10000 times in a row on the salted password
to hash it instead of md5crypt or just unix crypt.

(Or something like that, I’ve got the full paper on it by drepper
mirrored here somewhere since I implemented it in Java™ for my
coworkers. Not knowing any Java™, I might add.)

I’ve got no idea how to change the default algorithm back to
md5crypt, that’s a debian user question. Afterwards, just setting
a new password with passwd should then use md5crypt.

$ sudo sed -n /^root/p /etc/shadow
gives you an indication: $6$ is the slow one, $1$ md5crypt, and
no $ at all UNIX crypt().

No, the only way I've seen them sold is for $40 with a free OpenBSD CD.
