Try using modprobe, not insmod.
If it still fails, try to load ipv6 first.

Hm. Where's this module located in your system? Did you compile it with your kernel or separately? On my system it's here

$ locate sctp.ko
/lib/modules/2.6.23-ARCH/kernel/net/netfilter/nf_conntrack_proto_sctp.ko
/lib/modules/2.6.23-ARCH/kernel/net/netfilter/xt_sctp.ko
/lib/modules/2.6.23-ARCH/kernel/net/sctp/sctp.ko

/lib/modules/2.6.21-2950.fc8xen/kernel/net/netfilter/xt_sctp.ko
/lib/modules/2.6.21-2950.fc8xen/kernel/net/sctp/sctp.ko
/lib/modules/2.6.23.1-42.fc8/kernel/net/netfilter/nf_conntrack_proto_sctp.ko
/lib/modules/2.6.23.1-42.fc8/kernel/net/netfilter/xt_sctp.ko
/lib/modules/2.6.23.1-42.fc8/kernel/net/sctp/.sctp.ko.swp

OK, then one more question. When you load it with modprobe, you type
modprobe sctp
not modprobe sctp.ko, right?
