are you -sure- you have CentOS 5.x ??!?   

I believe the DSA Signature key is in package centos-release from that 
same path
http://mirror.centos.org/centos-5/5/os/i386/CentOS/
(assuming 32bit centos5, adjust path for different versions or 
architectures)


re: the failed dependencies, you'll need to install those other RPMs 
too, again from the same path...

some of those RPMs may require yet more, download and install them too. 
repeat until yum works.
