This is not cubic enviroment mapping.
Sky ''boxes'' dont have to be cubes, but cubes tend to look as good as most alternatives and are simple so they are quite common.
Cubic enviroment mapping put simply is a special case of enviroment mapping where 6 textures are "stitched" together, ie a cube net if imagined layed out flat.
You will find many articles on both skyboxes and cubic enviroment mapping if you look around a bit I''m sure.
Hope this is of some use, and if someone wants to argue about my pathetic explanation of cubic enviroment mapping please save your breath =)
