I assume this is /lib/modules/2.4.18/fs/minix/minix.o on your UML

If it is, then try booting the image and running depmod -a, then try
modprobe minix. If you still get an error, try running insmod with
the full path to the module - I /know/ that works with my UML setup,
because it loads /my/ modules.

If all that fails, try the UML mailing lists . . .
