Rayleigh-Taylor instability problem involving two perfectly conducting superposed fluids of finite density in the presence of gravitational and magnetic fields normal to the interface between the fluids is examined for small amplitude perturbations. The potentially stable situation is considered throughout. A theory is proposed which makes the above physical situation mathematically well-posed and resolves the apparent anomaly regarding the existence of normal modes in such systems.
