You've installed a SOURCE rpm  -- what you need to do is build that rpm, 
then install the binary it produces:

rpmbuild --rebuild numpy-1.0.1-1.src.rpm

then look near the end of the output for where is put the resulting 
binary rpm. It can then be installed as you did above.

Alternatively, find a pre-built binary (on without .src. in the name)for 
your system.
