If there is a form yes, you can automate it. Just get to the login page, view the source, grab the <form action="url URL url"> get the url from there, then collect all of the hidden values together, and say the text box name for the username is "user" and password is "pass". put those after the form action url. like this.
<form action="http://www.site.com/script.cgi" method="POST">
<input type="text" name="user">
<input type="text" name="pass">
<input type="HIDDEN" name="anything" value="54">
