What files do you see in /etc/yum.repo.d/? You should also have the
standard files that are installed by default when you install fc5. 

What's the content of the planetccrma repo file?

"gsl" is in the base repository (ie: it is part of the original fc5
dvd), so it should be installable after a default install. You should be
able to do a "yum install gsl", if that does not work then you are
missing the base or core repository (some packages will also depend on
the extras repository so you have to have that enabled as well).

Most probably you installed to /usr/local and the linker is not
configured to look there. Try to find what that installer installed and
erase it... otherwise it may give you problems when you install the
proper gsl package.
