There is a workaround: use Newton Press. You can even run it natively without Virtual PC, and it will install any package, not just books. Choose "Install Package" from the File menu and "Macintosh serial" (not "DOS or Windows PC") on the Newton. I think it even installs faster than NCK, and it also has a progress bar.
