      A would-be teen terrorist, wanted by the FBI for allegedly
      posting a how-to-blow-things-up Web site, was nabbed during
      World Economic Forum demonstrations, cops said yesterday.

      Sherman Austin, 18, of tony Sherman Oaks, Calif., was
      arrested Saturday for disorderly conduct during a
      demonstration at 59th Street and Fifth Avenue.

      They soon discovered that Austin was suspected by the feds
      of posting explosives information on the Internet. When
      investigators raided his apartment Jan. 24, they said they
      discovered a treasure-trove of mischief-making tools.

      In addition to computers, they found literature advocating
      revolution, gas canisters, iced-tea bottles filled with
      flammable material, gas masks and an anarchist flag.

      Austin's car contained fertilizer, cans of brake fluid and
      two gas canisters. He runs an anarchist Web site that
      provides a litany of methods that can be used for urban
      thuggery - including making explosives.

      He has been turned over to the feds.

      Meanwhile, the final day of demonstrations wrapped up in
      front of Arthur Andersen's 1365 Sixth Ave. offices with nary
      a whimper.

      About 150 protesters slammed the corporate gluttony of Enron
      and its embattled auditor Andersen, but refrained from
      confronting a wall of cops.

      The march was watched closely by about 150 cops, and there
      were no arrests.

      Chanting, "Andersen cooks Enron's books," the
      anti-globalization protesters included an array of aging
      hippies, college students and union members.

      "We believe we have a right to be here," said "Starhawk,"
      who said she lives in San Francisco. "Our resolve is
      strengthened despite police intimidation."

      Organizers said that many of the protesters who had traveled
      to the Big Apple to protest the World Economic Forum at the
      Waldorf-Astoria have now gone home.

      Starhawk said the Sept. 11 terror attack on New York was a
      key factor in lowering the tempo of the demonstrations. She
      said the New York organizers wanted any action to be
