We observed a number of classical and recurrent novae in the Galaxy and the LMC with the ROSAT X-ray telescope and searched the archival data for other serendipitous observations. Preliminary results show that only 9 out of 37 observed objects were bright enough in X-rays to be detected with ROSAT, either in outburst or at quiescence.
