This is basically how you do it.

<form name="myform">
<select name="mysel" onchange="this.form.mytext.value=this.options[this.selectedIndex].value">
<option value="">Please select</option>
<option value="This is item 1">item 1</option>
<option value="This is item 2">item 2</option>
<option value="This is item 3">item 3</option>
<input type="text" name="mytext" />
