Rayleigh-Taylor instability of a composite medium with variable density and viscosity is considered by taking into account the frictional effect of collisions of ionized with neutral atoms in the presence of a variable horizontal magnetic field. The criteria determining stability and instability are independent of the effects of viscosity and collisional effects. The magnetic field stabilizes the system which is otherwise unstable in the absence of the magnetic field. The viscosity of the medium has stabilizing as well as destabilizing effect on the growth rates. The collisional frequency has stabilizing effect on the growth rates, but has also destabilizing effect in some region.
