Wiring More Than One GFI Bathroom Outlet

Question: How do I wire a GFI outlets in two separate washrooms but on the same circuit when one GFI has four wires and the second only has two?
I tried the load and the line on the four wire outlet and the line on the two wire outlet but when I turn the power back on I do not get any power what so ever in the bathrooms.

The Safest Way to Test Electrical Devices and Identify Electric Wiring!The Non-Contact Electrical Tester
This is a testing tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and is the first test tool I grab to help identify electrical wiring. It is a Non-contact tester, [amazon.com], I use for the detection of Standard Voltage in Cables, Cords, Circuit Breakers, Lighting Fixtures, Switches, Outlets and Wires. Simply insert the end of the tester into an outlet, lamp socket, or hold the end of the tester against the wire you wish to test. Very handy and easy to use.
