Good question. I never tried to find out before ...
I played around a little bit. When you compile your own kernel, you get a
file called System.map. It contains the names and addresses of kernel
functions. The one from my own kernel has function names containing creator.
Unfortunately I could not find that file for the standard kernel on my
machine. Does not seem to belong to the kernel package :-(
So I did a
strings /boot/vmlinux-2.4.18-sun4u | grep -i creator
No result. With my own kernel I have 3 hits.
And I could not find any Creator stuff in the 2.4.18 module directory.
I have to guess, but I would say: no Creator support in the standard Woody

There is a Debian way to build a kernel of your own. It somhow uses the
Debian package managment as far as I know. I never used it, I take a kernel
from kernel.org, configuere, compile and install it. The way I did it before
I switched to Debian. So, if you want to go the Debian way, I am the wrong
person to talk to ;-)
