You can use something like the sky box in the landscape demos, or a sphere with a texture on it. The general idea is that you center the sky object on the camera at all times, so it never gets closer.

For backgrounds on menus you can either resize a texture or use the PRGFX_Putblock8bit routines. PR3 also has some new functions like PRGFX_Putblock32bit and PRGFX_ShowOverlay.
