See the server system variables section of the manual. You want the maximum temporary table size variable. Remember that you can set this for each individual query/session, so you may be able to leave it small most of the time and make it large just for the query which needs it.

The key buffer size may also help but there is a cost: the RAM allocated for that in MyISAM isn't available in system cache to cache the data rows. So, you need to balance the two amounts.
