Now that you have confirmed it's not a homework, here's a quick and dirty
solution in Javascript:


<form name="form0" method="GET" action="whatever.whatever">
  <select name="disney_char"
      onchange="document.form0.guest_star.value = options[selectedIndex].text">
    <option value="mickey">Mickey Mouse</option>
    <option value="mini">Mini Mouse</option>
    <option value="donald">Donald Duck</option>

  <input name="guest_star" type="text" />

  <input type="submit" value="Submit" />


'onchange="document.form0.guest_star.value = options[selectedIndex].text' copies
the selected value to the textbox named "guest_star".

BTW, Javascript is the only way to do it since Trac is a web app.
