    I use thickbox for this sort of thing;

    You can see it in action at;

    under the "view map" link.

    Thickbox is a jquery plugin like lightbox that you can use to load up a html page with your custom map.

    EDIT: I had issues with IE and Firefox only showing 2/3 of the map in the Thickbox so I ditched it and just loaded it in a normal page in the end. Worked great in safari and webkit though…
