You can certainly have an unattended boot - the GRUB menu comes up and, after
a specified interval, it will go on to boot the first entry on the menu
(unless, of course, you manually select another).
However, if you've just done a system upgrade or destroyed a kernel or
whatever, or are just Grub-floppy-booting into a system, then you can bring
up the Grub command line which has, as Paul said, tab autocompletion - and
very handy it is too for finding a kernel when you can't remember whether
it's vmlinuz2.4.18-bf2.4 or vmlinuz2.4.18_bf2.4
