Passing aariable from controller to a different view ????

Hi Guys,

I am still very new to this rails stuff so I'm looking for some help. I
have a login controller which authenticates a person and redirects them
to the projects page, here is a snippet of code.

Use restful authentication (or a similar plugin) for tracking that
kind of stuff: http://github.com/technoweenie/restful_authentication

Couldnt I just do the following... in my projects controller?

before_filter :find_projects

def index
  # @projects = Project.find(:all)
  # @project_company = @projects.company_id
    @projects = @results.find(:all)

    respond_to do |format|
      format.html # index.html.erb
      format.xml { render :xml => @projects }
    end
  end

def find_projects
    @user_in = Person.find_by_id(session["user_id"])
    @company = Company.find_by_id(@user_in.company_id)
    @results = Company.find(@company.id).projects # Find all projects
that belong to company
  end
