Thanks for that info.
Fact is, I'm doing this for a customer and don't have the time or the inclination for a lot of software installation/configuration. The customer isn't interested either, so we're moving forward with the original install.
I do have another query, however; I installed the new system and started up. Windows xp startup sound blasted clearly out of the cabinet speaker system, but the video on the screen was unintelligible, although I could see movement when I moved mouse and right-clicked a desktop menu. I recalled that I had left the settings on for my bench monitor, so they were 1024x768/32bit. I didn't have a monitor with me, so had to take back to shop to reset video at Winxp default VGA 640x480 at 16bit. Is it likely that this was the issue or am I facing something worse? I did check the video controls on the arcade and that was not the problem.
I was able to see that the monitor is an Orion a48jll40x (Daewoo) and is being driven by a Wells Gardner board. The VGA connector is a standard VGA, but with only 12 pins, as follows: (x marks no pin)

I am going back tomorrow to retry and will have new secondary monitor with me, so can make changes to XP config. Any suggestions or advise is appreciated...
