There is another "mate in 5" combination:
also if 4. Bxf5 black can do nothing to stop Qf8#
I assume you mean 4.Bf5, but after a move by black, 5. Qf8+ is not mate, as the king can move to g5, since the queen is no longer covering this square.
The line kayzingzingy is referring to is 2...Kg8 3. g7 Nf5. Then 4. Bxf5 threatens an unstoppable 5. Qf8#.
What he said
easy, and fun! :)
Why not 4.f8 to make new queen and give check?
If 4. f8Q+ then Kh5, and no mate in five for white.
