What do Orthodox churches teach about original sin?

Someone commented on the Bible & Homosexuality thread that the Orthodox churches take a different view about original sin - could someone give me a summary, or point me to a suitable website about this?

My own view of theology (God as ultimate creator, but evolution as the mechanism)doesn't include Adam & Eve, so the concept of "original sin" coming from their actions doesn't work for me. I'd be interested to see how others have worked through the consequences of that whole issue.

Thanks, the idea of sin as "sickness" rather than "crime" is certainly closer to how I think of it.
