Take a look at the SDK samples!!

In the "Environment Mapping" folder you''ll find both spherical and cube env mapping.

Also look in the SDK documentation under:
DirectX 8.1 (C++) ->
DirectX Graphics ->
Programmers Guide ->
Advanced Topics ->
Environment Mapping

The key is calculating the texture coordinates for the mesh in realtime based on the view reflection vector. In D3D this can be done with automatic texture coordinate generation (aka TexGen).
