I agree with Hammer, unless amended in your location,
NEC allows GFCI's to protect gounding type receptacles,
under the conditions stated. There are a couple of
additional requirements. Each grounding type receptacle
being protected by the GFCI must be labeled "GFCI Protected"
and "No Equipment Ground". Also, the grounding termainals
of the grouding type receptacles may not be connected
together and to the grounding terminal of the GFCI
(it may seem strange that anyone would do this, but
trust me, it's not allowed).
I also agree that it would be even better to have a real
ground, and would point out that it is acceptable to
run an idependent grounding conductor (as opposed to
all new cable) if properly done.
