It plots just fine at this machine (WinXP, Mathematica 6.0.1).
IIRC, v5.2 would complain about complex numbers arising from the second
function for y > 1. If that's the problem, you can split it in two plots
and Show the results, something like this:
Show[Plot[1/(1 + y^2), {y, 0, 5}], Plot[Sqrt[-1 + 1/y], {y, 0, 1}]]
or perhaps
Clear[f]
f[y_] /; y <= 1 := Sqrt[-1 + 1/y]
f[y_] = 0;
Plot[{1/(1 + y^2), f@y}, {y, 0, 5}]
