Threads - are they supported?

Forgive me if this isn't exactly the right place to ask, but...

Does the Linux kernel support threads? I.e. multiple threads of
execution within the same process / address space, is how I understand
threads. AKA "lightweight processes", etc, as found in OS/2, NT, etc.

If not, is there any intention to do so?

Is there a user-level threading package?
