Yes: the first outlet in the series is replaced by the GFCI. Input
(line) to the "Line" terminals; output (to the other outlets
downstream) to "Load". The "regular" outlets downstream are now GFCI-
protected and a fault at any one or at the GFCI itself will cause the
GFCI to trip, killing power to the circuit.
The usual installation of a GFCI is with a properly grounded line.
Always worth-while checking/verifying with an outlet tester.
