That's what the package names are on CentOS / RHEL5. I can't see why 
they would be different on Fedora, but you can always do:

# yum list | grep -i gfs

and see what that returns. It is possible that kmod-gfs is actually 
built into the kernel itself (Fedora have much more frequent complete 
kernel updates, as stability is not the main requirement), so there is 
no separate package.

If I had to hazard a guess, then gfs-utils isn't there because GFS1 
isn't included in Fedora, only GFS2. So try gfs2-utils. The output of 
"yum list" should make it obvious if this is the case.

I said it before and I'll say it again - use FC's GFS2 at your peril. 
Last time I tried it (~6 months ago), it didn't work at all.
