does that mean that I will have to dedicate that
physical device for the Snapshot. I mean if I had
4 device /dev/sda /dev/sdb /dev/sdc /dev/sdd and
previously if I was striping my original LV over
all the 4 devices, in the current context I stripe
the original LV over 3 devices and create the
Snapshot LV over the 4th (dev/sdd) ?

Just add the PV name to the end of the command-line.

eg. if your original LV (/dev/vg/original) is on
/dev/sdc1 and you want the
snapshot on /dev/sdj1 do:

lvcreate -L<size> -s -n snapshot /dev/vg/original
