Cronjob problem. Unknown Command

i have installed an application called qstat. this basically logs how many players u got on a server etc. Now im trying to apply it with a cronjob with the following command :

0-59 * * * * qstat ( paramaters ) and its giving me Unknown command in /bin/sh.

The thing is that i can actually run qstat in the shell. ( i press q, press TAB key, and qstat forms and it actually runs so i rly dont know y its telling me unknown command in /bin/sh. )

Cron needs the full path to your application.

such as:

/usr/bin/qstat (parameters)
