I won't be using surge protectors. I just want to replace a few of my two pronged, non-grounded, outlets with GFCI's.

This will allow me to safely use three pronged equipment without the time,...

Yes, there are two black and two white. One set supplying power to the switch, and the other set sending that power to the light fixture. Standard setup.

Yes, the light switch, in the half bath, has a constant source of power. That's all the electrical in that half bath. Just a light switch and a light.

Ray,

I think I misread your entire post. Or, at least I'm not understanding how it applies to what I'm needing.
