If you do not want the client machines to see all the samba shares when browsing in network neighborhood, add a line to your smb.conf file that "browsable = no" to each share. That way, the share will not be seen by the clients when browsing. Hope that helps. I con't really understand whether you are having other issues or not, because your wording is difficult to understand.

Thanks a lot for your reply, i know that me english is very bad :-((
I know the use of breowseable but isn't that i want.
My user tree is in /home , i have created my share with path = /home with browseable = yes.
In /home path i have all my user, but with differents right (Carl can see only its home, Jack can see its home and Carl's home) When i'm logging as Carl i browse my tree and i'll see only my home, when i'am logging as jack i browse my tree and i'll see jack's home and carl's home. It's possible ???
