Smile Noah and Ham--Noah's Curse

In Genesis 9:22-27,
In Verse 24-25, "And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his done younger son had unto him. And he said, Cursed be Canaan, (Noah's grandson) is servant of servants shall be unto his breathren.

I know that there is no way of know what exactly happen between Noah and Ham to have a Father put a Curse on His Son, but it seems to me that Ham did more than to see his Father nude.

I think that this could be the first act of homosexuality in the Bible because of this "knew what his younger son had done unto him". It describes an action rather than a "look".

Does any one know about Jewish family traditions -if a Father can render a curse upon a child-son for an inappropirate look or Hebrew words? Anything!

There was a question about this passage at my church, and the pastor used the NIV translation, which I do not think is the most accurate translation.

What do you think? Please back up with scripture if able.
