       I know there is some slick trick for getting around this, which
always seems adequate when I recall or reconstruct it; but I don't recall

I would do the following:

At the installation screen type "linux text" to perform your installation.

Don't forget to install "system-config-display". It is not installed by default.
Given what you describe I would first try "linux vga=792" or some other vesa mode you like for your hardware. If that works but encounters trouble once the installation GUI fires up try adding the "vnc" option too and watch for it to tell you what its address and screen are to access the installation from another machine using vncviewer.
