Why is it a problem? Do you really want to have to type filenames like:
SDL-0.1.2.8_i386.rpm
manually every time?!

Well the tab auto-completion is a feature of the shell you're using. This is often bash though it can be another. Here on the bash site there are what it looks like completion patches, however I'd say a lot of distros should somehow have this.

Under the downloads section is a howto on installing it. I think you can also find how to disable it there Probably somewhere in your .bashrc or profile files.
